20th Annual Faith Labor Breakfast
April 28, 8:00-10:00 am
Christ Presbyterian Church, 944 E Gorham St | Madison
Join Worker Justice Wisconsin for this celebration of the 20th Annual Breakfast, followed by the South Central Federation of Labor’s Workers’ Memorial Day Remembrance.
Our keynote speaker, Alexis Herman, was the first African American Secretary of Labor, and has been a tireless champion for the important role of diversity in society and the workplace. As Secretary, she focused on a prepared workforce, a secure workforce, and quality workplaces. She led the effort to institute a global child labor standard and launched the most aggressive unemployed youth initiative since the 1970’s. Under her tenure, unemployment in the country reached a thirty-year low, and witnessed the safest workplace record in the history of the Department of Labor. Alexis Herman’s actions as Secretary were a reflection of her understanding of the needs of America’s workers and the challenges they faced as this nation approached the 21st Century.
In her public service, as well as her non- profit work, Ms. Herman has served the last five Presidents of the United States, both Democratic and Republican. Her nonprofit work today includes: serving as a Trustee for the National Urban League, Co-Chair of the Bush Clinton Presidential Leadership Scholars, a member of the Executive Board of her Sorority, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and President of the Dorothy I. Height Educational Foundation.
