Constituency groups affiliated with the MRLF

Constituency groups provide another avenue for working people to get involved in improving their workplaces and communities. Currently, three constituency groups, the A. Philip Randolph Institute, the Coalition of Labor Union Women and Pride at Work, are active in the Minneapolis area. A fourth, the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement, is in formation.

For more information on any of these organizations, contact Candace Lund at the Minnesota AFL-CIO, clund@mnaflcio.org

A. Philip Randolph Institute
APRI's mission, from our founding to the present, has been to fight for racial equality and economic justice. Our role is unique in that we work with black trade unionists, the people best suited to serve as a bridge between labor and the black community.

APRI spearheads what we term the "Black-Labor Alliance." We build black community support for the trade union movement, and convey to labor the needs and concerns of black Americans.With more than 150 chapters in 36 states, APRI members are involved in political and community education, lobbying, legislative action and labor support activities.
Minnesota president: John Kinsey

Coalition of Labor Union Women
CLUW is America's only national organization for union women. Our members are on the frontline, empowering working women to become leaders in their unions and encouraging them to make a difference on the job and, most importantly, in their own lives. Our values are simple: solidarity, involvement, dignity and justice.

Pride at Work
Pride At Work is affiliated as the newest constituency group of the AFL-CIO. The purpose of Pride At Work is to mobilize mutual support between the organized Labor Movement and the LGBT Community around organizing for social and economic justice.

We see full equality for LGBT Workers in their workplaces and unions. We work towards creating a Labor Movement that cherishes diversity, encourages openness, and ensures safety & dignity. We aim to educate the LBGT Community about the benefits of union membership for LGBT working people, and to build support and solidarity for the union movement in the LGBT community.

We intend to do this in the spirit of the union movement's historic motto, "An Injury to One is An Injury to All." We oppose all forms of discrimination on the job and in our unions based on sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, religion or political views.
