LCLAA Establishes the Richard Trumka Latino Fellowship Program to Honor Late Leader
With the unexpected passing of AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, the membership of the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA) moved an emergency resolution creating The Richard Trumka Latino Fellowship Program. This fellowship, designed to be a yearlong, paid fellowship, will offer participants an opportunity to gain insights into the complex political, social and economic forces that shape the operating environment of the labor movement. The fellowship will help build emerging labor leaders and unionists. Help us keep President Trumka’s vision and legacy alive by donating to the Richard Trumka Latino Fellowship.
Richard Trumka was renowned for his commitment to economic justice, civic engagement, workers’ rights, community empowerment and equity for all. He understood that the backbone of the union movement was to organize all sectors of workers. He believed that the union movement must ensure opportunities for young people to develop and join leaders to educate, organize and agitate. For this reason, LCLAA will ensure that President Trumka’s vision lives on through the creation of a Latino Fellowship Program to memorialize his work.
The Richard Trumka Latino Fellowship Program will introduce young Latinos to the value of being part of the labor movement.
Please make a donation to this program and help us keep President Trumka’s vision and legacy alive!
