Why Have Local Union Human Rights Committees?
If we truly want the union to be a vehicle for human rights, we need people within the union who develop and maintain that focus. We need people who are dedicated to seizing opportunities, building allies, explaining the issues, and making connections with and between our members and our various communities. We need people who are not afraid to stand up and speak out for equity and fairness, even when it’s not popular, and even when the odds are against us.
