Statement of Employment Support for People with Dwarfism
Little People of America (LPA) would like to extend its support to the plaintiffs in two Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) lawsuits, both involving women with dwarfism. Employment discrimination remains a key issue in our community. LPA is dedicated to raising awareness around employment issues that face people with dwarfism and fully supports its members’ pursuit of any and all career opportunities.
Welcome to the new on-line home of Little People of America.
We hope you like our new look!
Little People of America (LPA) is a nonprofit organization that provides support and information to people of short stature and their families. LPA is only able to continue our work with support from members, friends and family. Please consider making a donation to our annual $50 for 50 More Years Fundraising Campaign.
