“The Power of Equality: Regina V Polk and Women Pioneers in Labor Union Leadership


The Human Rights and Diversity Commission, in conjunction with the Teamsters History Project, welcomes the next segment of monthly history programs based on Teamsters, the labor movement, and the diversity within our union.

These programs are designed to look at a wide variety of aspects in our shared past, including events in Black, Women’s, Hispanic, and LGBTQ+ histories and their impact on Teamsters and the labor movement.

The programs, presented in Zoom format, will be open to all and approximately 90 minutes in length; registration is required to receive the link to join the session. We do encourage you to share this announcement with anyone you believe to be interested; this is not just for Teamsters but to everyone in your communities. We hope this program will generate some lively discussion and ideas for programs in your locals, communities, and at home.
