Building Worker Power with Immigrant Labor Leaders

Clinic 4
The Labor movement has long been at the forefront of combating racism and xenophobia. The immigrant community nationwide has felt a dramatic rise in both. With a push to further divide workers through the hateful rhetoric from Trump and others, Labor in Central Florida is instead focusing on building power in the community, at the workplace and at the ballot box. The Central Florida AFL-CIO, working with community partners, affiliates and the Florida Immigrant Coalition (FLIC) recently launched a leadership development program to empower leaders in the immigrant community to champion initiatives that improve the lives of workers, their families and communities in Central Florida. Additionally, the program cultivates relationships among and between workers, and their Unions, while supporting a pathway to citizenship and protecting voting rights for those who are eligible.
