The National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) announced Friday that it is giving $100 million to a campaign to help combat discrimination against women and people of color in the travel industry.
The announcement comes after the NACS voted last week to back President Donald Trump’s pledge to end workplace discrimination against transgender individuals and employees.
The company said in a statement that it supports efforts to eliminate workplace discrimination in all areas of the industry.
“Transgender Americans face discrimination at the hands of our employers, and that includes the travel business,” NACSD Executive Director Stephanie Smith said in the statement.
“We will continue to support the transgender community in the fight for equality and inclusion in the workplace.”
The NACSS’ latest annual report says the travel agency has more than 6,000 locations across the country, including hotels, motels, restaurants and airports.
