Standing Against Racial Injustice
In our June 2, 2020 hotline, APFA Leadership committed to continuing the conversation on racial injustice. Long overdue conversations about centuries of systemic racism are happening across America. Labor Unions have always been and must continue to be at the forefront of these conversations. We support continued awareness and inclusion for all our members, especially for our Black colleagues who do not feel fully supported and included. We can and must do more to ensure this opportunity for historic change is not squandered.
APFA fully supports American Airline’s Black Professionals Network’s (BPN) decision to offer a Black Lives Matter pin as an approved Employee Business Resource Group (EBRG) uniform accessory and will continue to do all we can to support equality and diversity throughout our Union and American Airlines. While wearing the pin is optional, we encourage all our members to wear the pin to keep the conversations going and to be part of history in the making.
Standing side-by-side with all of you in Solidarity,
Your APFA National Officers and APFA Board of Directors
