Black History Month Profiles: Felicia Wilkerson

Felicia Wilkerson

This year, for Black History Month, we're taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making Black history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today's profile is Felicia Wilkerson of AFSCME.

Helping the community is more than just a job for Felicia Wilkerson, it’s personal. When Wilkerson and her daughter faced homelessness, they turned to their neighbors and community organizations to help them get through it. Now, Wilkerson serves on the board of the Brethren Housing Association, helping others get back on their feet. And as an active member of AFSCME Local 3130, Wilkerson uses her voice on the job to bring her coworkers together and strengthen public services.
