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 Capt. Robin Kim of the Air Line Pilots Association (ALPA).
Capt. Robin Kim of Alaska Airlines is an 11-year ALPA member and serves as a local council representative. In this role, he builds upon the collective unity of fellow pilots to serve as their advocate in various matters affecting their careers. He also was appointed to the initial Youth Aviation Initiative Panel of the Civil Air Patrol, volunteering to help young people across the nation achieve their dreams to fly.
