Remarks of AFL-CIO President Richard L. Trumka
National Day Laborers’ Organizing Network 6th Annual Convention
I’m proud to stand with you because I don’t know of anyone who is working as hard as you are to force the United States to live up to and fully honor its democratic ideals.
Organizing — coming together — is one of our greatest values.
The pursuit of justice is one of our greatest values.
Uniting for justice in the face of prejudice, under threat of official reprisal, against loud public condemnation, is what makes this nation great.
