The Richard Trumka Latino Fellowship Program
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 his vision lives on through the creation of a Latino Fellowship and Internship program to memorialize his work.
The Richard Trumka Latino Fellowship and Internship Program will introduce young Latinos to the value of being part of the labor movement. This program will offer the participants an opportunity to gain insights into the complex political, social, and economic forces that shape the operating environment of the labor movement, and will help build emerging labor leaders and unionists.
