Millions of undocumented immigrants, who are vital to our economic recovery, still live in fear because of our outdated and inhumane immigration system. It’s time to put an end to this injustice. Tell your senators to pass a budget that includes a broad pathway to citizenship.
Given the COVID pandemic and undeniable sacrifices made by Union members on the frontlines, the Hudson Valley Area Labor Federation decided to honor our Labor Heroes in a new way this year. To appropriately recognize their important work, rather than give individual awards, we decided to applaud every Union affiliate, and its members for their individual sacrifices in support of the common good. We know that every worker stepped up when the Hudson Valley needed it the most, and braved the uncertainty of this virus with grace, dedication, and care for our communities. Whether working remotely or directly, these are the people who went above and beyond to provide essential services in every industry. We can never thank them enough.
