If you are in any way part of the LGBTQ community, you simply must listen to the following podcast with Verizon:
Mario Acosta-Velez, Regional Director and National President of Global Verizon, sat down with the LGBT Friendly Lookup, and began listing all of the incredible ways in which Verizon shows support for the community, both internally with their own employees, and also FAR beyond the limits of their company. Whether it is supporting or opposing state and federal laws, joining the Human Rights Campaign and various state outreach Pride programs and initiatives, Verizon is doing just about everything a company can do to support the LGBTQ community.
But perhaps the most impressive of all is the “Connected By Pride” campaign initiated by Verizon in June of 2018. It is through this campaign that Verizon backed up all their public displays of support with a $250,000 donation to the national organization PFLAG to support the more than 400 PFLAG chapters across the United States.
Verizon has proven over and over again to be a company that fully deserves the support of the LGBTQ community. Every time you pick up your phone to call, text or surf (which for many of us can seem to be about a hundred times a day), let’s remember all that Verizon has done and continues to do!
