How do we truly build a labor movement that is inclusive to young workers, people of color and the LGBT community? It's more than just holding a meeting or attending a conference, says Tahir Duckett, national young worker coordinator at the AFL-CIO, at a pre-conference diversity summit at the AFL-CIO 2013 Convention.
“My voice is kind of going. I’ve got to get used to this!” says Antonio Elizondo, a 23-year-old Union Summer intern from Los Angeles.
Elizondo is one of about 30 interns who converged on the AFL-CIO headquarters in Washington, D.C., this week for workshops and classes on activism and union organizing as the start of Union Summer, the AFL-CIO’s national program that introduces interns to the labor movement on union organizing campaigns.
