2019’s Summit covered a wide range of important information including the Census, employment, Real ID, driver licenses for all, and unlock the vote.
In 2018, the African-American Summit focused on “Standing Together, Standing Strong” and was a coalition effort by CBTU, LCLAA, and APRI. Being an election year, there was a special presentation on voter rights=civil rights and voter readiness. Participants made over 700 phone calls to union members that were not registered to vote on their voting rights.
In 2017, “Pathways to a Job: 2017 African-American Summit” was hosted by the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists (CBTU) and the Milwaukee Area Labor Council Civil Rights Committee.
