Rosh Hashanah

Self-Reflection, the Labor Movement and Black Lives Matter: Rosh Hashanah Dvar from Tolle Graham

It is fitting for my remarks today that Labor Day was just a week ago, when we celebrated the invaluable contributions of working people who built this country and who also built the middle class. Labor Day also involves self-evaluation: labor leaders and even President Obama at this year’s Greater Boston Labor Council Labor Day breakfast talked about the labor movement’s values, our successes and challenges, while calling on all of us as unionists, workers, and the electorate to recommit ourselves to fighting for the rights and dignity of working people.
