District 6 Virtual Black History Month Celebration

Join us for an exciting Black History Month virtual celebration on February 25 at 7 p.m. ET, hosted by the District 6 Human Rights Committee.

This year has seen an important surge in activism confronting anti-Black racism and state violence as well as recognizing and celebrating the contributions of Black people and organizations. Our union is a part of this movement.

The event is also an opportunity to find out how you can play a role in your union to stand up for racial justice. All are welcome!

We’ll hear from:

Roxanne Brown, USW International VP At Large
Fred Redmond, USW International VP, Human Affairs
Yolanda McLean, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists Ontario President
Mark Austin, Co-chair of the District 6 Human Rights Committee and USW Local 1998 Health and Safety officer and Recording Secretary

February 25 at 7 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. AT / 8:30 p.m. NT
