Get informed, Get involved

Last year, the Canadian Labour Congress hosted a series of podcasts to commemorate Black History Month, including a French podcast with USW Local 1944 President Isabelle Miller speaking about people of colour in the labour movement. The podcasts are available at http://1944.fyi/dsDhXw (English) and http://1944.fyi/jm29Bk (French).

On Sunday, February 3, 2019, Sister Miller will be a panellist at the 2019 National Black Canadians Summit “Mapping Our Future – Face To Face With Our Lawmakers”. She will be speaking on the theme ‘Labour and Systemic Racism: Black in the Workplace’. The event is free. For more information, please visit the Facebook event page: http://1944.fyi/YBghCY.

Many events are organized to celebrate Black History Month throughout Canada. The Civil and Human Rights Committee encourages our members to check the listing in your local communities to join in.
