Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Profile: Kevin Boone

Kevin Boone

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 Kevin Boone of the United Steelworkers (USW).

Kevin Boone is a steward for USW Local 9562 at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. As a Korean American and a fourth-generation union member, he was a proud first-time attendee at last year’s APALA Convention in Seattle, and he returned to his local determined to better support his fellow members. "The pride I feel contributing to the legacy of my AAPI siblings and their multiracial and transnational solidarity empowers me to experience a stronger connection to my heritage."
