Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

This Friday, the AFL-CIO, SAG-AFTRA, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the AFL-CIO Technology Institute and UNITE HERE will host the fourth annual Labor Innovation & Technology Summit alongside the CES 2023 technology show in Las Vegas.

Taylor, SAG-AFTRA Executive Vice President Ben Whitehair, and SAG-AFTRA National Executive Director and Chief Negotiator Duncan Crabtree-Ireland.

The summit will feature three panels, focused on what the future of tech in the workplace looks like, how to integrate tech in a way that protects workers, and ethical issues on the horizon as artificial intelligence, automation and tech giants gain prominence.
