“If you are hearing one, there are probably hundreds”

Robert Hollingsworth

Executive Director, AFSCME District Council 20

“Understand that what is happening to some of your fellow residents of the District of Columbia, can happen to you, and can happen to people who you know…The humanitarian in me says that I should be and must be involved in those kinds of things, and I would hope that the humanity in each of us would push us to become active in these kinds of issues that we see in the community every day.”

Robert Hollingsworth, Executive Director of AFSCME District Council 20, speaks here about workers’ rights, but his message applies to every aspect of movement solidarity.
