“The labor movement is not a building. We are a living collection of working people who will never stop fighting for economic, social and racial justice. We are united unequivocally against the forces of hate who seek to divide this nation for their own personal and political gain at our expense. We will clean up the glass, sweep away the ashes and keep doing our part to bring a better day out of this hour of darkness and despair.”
From the AFL-CIO President's June 1 statement on the AFL-CIO building (which was hit by fire and vandalism in Sunday night protests) and justice for George Floyd.
