Thu, Jun 18, 2020 at 05:00 PM

TODAY, Thursday, June 18th at 5pm, please join the New York City Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO for an opportunity for Labor Leaders in NYC to discuss the role of the Labor Movement in the fight for racial, social, and economic justice, and the work that we will continue to do to move forward together. This will include conversations on the three crises we are currently facing in New York City and across the country: the healthcare crisis of COVID-19, the economic crisis that has left 40 million people unemployed, and the continuing crisis of racial inequality, as well as how they are all interconnected.
