Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, the AFL-CIO will be profiling leaders and activists to spotlight the diverse contributions Hispanics and Latinos have made to the labor movement. Today's profile features Brenda Bedolla of the Ironworkers.
A Michoacán, Mexico, native and DACA recipient, Brenda Bedolla’s passion for workers’ rights and social justice was shaped by her firsthand immigrant experience. In her current role with the Ironworkers, Bedolla organizes Portillo’s food service workers. She is passionate about building people power in and outside of workplaces, and can be found organizing her community when she's not organizing workers.
