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.
As a parent, or as an adult taking care of your health, there are some medical articles for you to be aware. More may be found on the Dwarfism Listserv on Yahoo, or on Parents of Little People 2 on Yahoo.
