Statement on Anti-Semitic Vandalism at AFT

Statement from AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on anti-Semitic vandalism at the American Federation of Teachers:

“The anti-Semitic slur defacing the AFT headquarters is a shameful act of hate. This disgusting act was clearly designed to harass, intimidate and divide, but the solidarity of America’s working people is stronger than any hatred slung in our direction. We have—and will—continue to forcefully call out and emphatically reject bigotry in any form, and we will never stop working to promote and protect the respect and dignity every working person deserves. The entire labor movement stands in solidarity with our brothers and sisters at the AFT.”
