Joint Center Participates in #BlackLaborDay

On September 3, the Joint Center participated in the second annual #BlackLaborDay social media conversation, led by the National Black Worker Center Project.

The conversation recognizes that too often Black work goes unacknowledged, and thanks Black workers for the significant contributions they make to the economy. It also creates awareness about the ways in which race affects the labor market fortunes of Black workers. The conversation occurred on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the #BlackLaborDay #ThankBlackWorkers and #WorkingWhileBlack hashtags.
