A Message from the SEIU Local 1000 African-American Committee


As SEIU Local 1000 celebrates the kickoff of another Black History Month, we lament the fact that we as a nation have yet to acknowledge our history of racial injustice, including the genocide of Native people, the legacy of slavery and racial terror lynchings, and the legally authorized segregation and abuse of people of color.

Before we can effectively address contemporary issues such as mass incarceration, immigration, and human rights, we must work to create a California for ALL by first telling the truth about our history.
