People need to call the senators, show support and make sure we get this confirmation to come to fruition.

What is at stake right now if we’re silent?

Why is important for the Black community to support organized labor?

It’s a historical source of empowerment. It’s a historical source of support [it’s] a historical resource of equity, inclusion and worker power.
