Shana Davis on Coalition of Black Trade Unionists

The Coalition of Black Trade Unionists is “a fiercely independent voice of Black workers within the trade union movement, challenging organized labor to be more relevant to the needs and aspirations of Black and poor workers” (AFL-CIO). Shana Davis, President, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, Capital District Chapter, joins Hudson Mohawk Magazine’s weekly check-in to help unpack the challenges and opportunities for Black people and other marginalized constituencies in labor unions, whose foundational commitments to empowerment and representation are belied by the same racist and exclusionary structures undergirding institutions across America. With HMM producers Cathy Silber and Sina Basila Hickey. For information about CBTU International, see cbtu.nationbuilder.com
