For Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month this year, the AFL-CIO is spotlighting various Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who have worked and continue to work at the intersection of civil and labor rights in the United States. Today's profile is Sheila Ivy Traister of SAG-AFTRA.
Sheila Ivy Traister has been an integral part of the Colorado AFL-CIO over the past several years. She led the process to interview affiliates at our past COPE Convention and created video to show unaffiliated unions the value of the state federation. Traister provided public speaking training for Colorado labor leaders, and has been a crucial voice on our Inclusion and Diversity Committee.
