Statement from the CWA Executive Board on the Need to Dismantle the Racism that Plagues Our Communities

The CWA Executive Board released a statement this week condemning the racism that has been plaguing our communities across the country.

"The CWA Executive Board is committed to moving beyond an endless string of reaction statements and demonstrating our continued commitment to justice for Black people through our organizing, representation, political, and movement building work," the Board wrote. "We commit to creating dedicated spaces for open dialogue on race for our members and leaders to determine outcomes and clear steps the union must take to fight racism in the union, within the industries we represent, and the community at-large.

"There is no in-between. There is no neutral option. The only real way to dismantle racism and build the working-class power we seek is for every worker to take on the struggle for justice for Black people in this country as their own and to embrace the actions that 'an injury to one is an injury to all' demands of us."
