Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month Profile: Christopher Reed

Christopher Reed

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 Christopher Reed of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC).

Christopher Reed, president of NALC Branch 5561, comes from a proud union family. Reed takes his role representing and defending letter carriers and their collective bargaining agreement seriously, and he takes pride in helping new letter carriers get settled. He is also a mentor and assistant coach to a back-to-back state championship-winning high school boys rugby team. Reed is of Samoan and Tongan descent, was raised in Hawaii and loves serving his community and the customers along his route.
