Meet Our Panelists

The 2nd Annual NAACP Labor Action Week will bring together union leaders, civil rights change-makers, young professionals, and activists to provide an advocacy framework and solutions for addressing and prioritizing the needs and interests of Black America, while also addressing long-standing issues around the racial wealth gap and systemic racism throughout the nation's employment industries.

This year's theme - The State of Black Labor: Wealth, Wellness, and Worth will be an opportunity to promote wealth equity, ensure wellbeing, and recognize the value of Black workers throughout the nation.
