Labor Day 2016 on KPFA Women's Magazine: Black Women Leading the Labor Movement

Black Women Leading the Labor Movement

"And Still I Rise is a part of The Black Worker Initiative, a bold and exciting new effort launched by the Institute for Policy Studies, which is deeply committed to helping achieve both the historic and contemporary aims of the labor and civil rights movements."

This Labor Day on Women's Magazine, we speak with Robin Williams, Director of Civil Rights and Community Action for the United Food & Commercial Workers International Union.  Williams joined UFCW as an 18-year-old Safeway worker with a new baby, and has become one of its key organizers.  She is one of 27 Black women labor leaders profiled in And Still I Rise: Black Women Labor Leaders, a report from the Black Worker Initiative of the Institute for Policy Studies.

"If I'm not making a difference then I don't want to be there." Robin Williams
