Making History

During a campaign stop in Atlanta, newly elected Mayor of Montgomery, Alabama Steven L. Reed spoke with District 3 Civil Rights and Equity Chairperson, Frederick Smith about worker’s rights and the role of Labor in the south. 
“He is very attentive to the community, and has some great ideas regarding inclusiveness for all” said Smith. I specifically admired that he plans to do more for mental health issues in the Montgomery area as well as work with existing labor unions.”
