The violence rally in Charlottesville, VA lead by White supremacist on Saturday August 12, 2017 is strongly condemn by AFRAM SEIU New York Chapter. The acts of violence which led to the senseless death of Heather Heyer, Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen, Trooper Berke Bates and injury to dozens, we mourn their loss and pray for recovery.

The Future AFRAM Stars are the movement of the future, a place without children is a place with no growth. The children will learn about the labor movement and how to become empowered to continue the fight to keep the labor movement strong for continuous growth into the future!!!
