When the labor movement is strong, the progressive movement is strong, and the role of marginalized workers is key to our future success as a nation. Thus the role of Black workers is key to the revitalization of the labor movement.

Please join us for the 3rd State of Black Workers in America Conference at Howard University sponsored by the Black Worker Initiative of the Institute for Policy Studies. Our goal is to highlight some of the most innovative and best organizing being led by Black workers in the US.
