Black Lives Matter, Labor & Minority Workers on the Job

The attack on minorities is not only by the police on the street. There has been a national epidemic of racist hanging noose incidents at work locations. These have also taken place in San Francisco, Oakland and other cities in Northern California.

At the same time there is the question of whether police should be part of the labor movement.

This forum will look at these issues and what working people and unions can do about these issues.

Initial Speakers:
Daryle Washington, Formerly IBT 350 Member
Brenda Barros, SEIU 1021 SF General Hospital Chair
Brandon Buchanon, UAW 2850 UCD Chief Steward
Phelicia Jones, Justice for Mario Woods Coalition, SEIU 1021
