You don’t need to look too far back to see how far we’ve come in the fight for civil rights — just 50 years, actually.
In an era when discrimination was as common as it was legal, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 struck down the status quo. Though we celebrate the progress we’ve made in the last 50 years, one thing remains clear: we’re not done yet.
Defending our rights doesn’t stop at the end of the work day, especially when the most basic rights — like the right to vote — are being stripped away. Workers rights, civil rights, human rights — as union members, we stand at the forefront of the fight to protect and advance them.
It was unacceptable in 1964. Today, it’s an outrage.
If you’re ready to do something about it, here’s the outlet. Take that energy, that passion, and that experience and help make a difference in our fight for human rights in the workplace — and beyond.
The CWA’s Human Rights Activists are fighting for change, and need your voice with them. Become a member today and earn your membership card:
As we honor the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, let’s embark on the next 50 years of advancement, together. Starting today.
