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.
Public Relations and LPA in the Media
Message from the current President of LPA, and past Vice President of Public Relations, Gary Arnold:
In my role I work to send a positive message about people of short stature and our organization. On this site, please find links to recent articles that include mention of LPA, statements and releases issued by LPA, and PR reports that include a summary of recent correspondence with media and production outlets.
As the President, I work closely with the Advocacy Committee, which use various forms of outreach to pursue issues important to LPA and the community of people with disabilities. As part of LPA’s Strategic Plan, we are building the Advocacy Committee to include at least one member from each district. Attached is a more detailed Advocacy Committee Member Job Description.
