The workers’ advocacy group American Rights at Work honored some of the nation’s leading voices for workers’ rights April 6 at its Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Award Celebration in Washington, D.C.
Actor Danny Glover also was honored for his indefatigable work on behalf of workers and the poor. Glover, who just completed a national bus tour to help organize hotel workers, says he considers his work a personal honor:
Working people support all of us. From the baggage handlers at the airports to the ticket sellers at the theaters, everyone deserves dignity on the job. Communities all across the country are attempting to realize that dream through organizing. I am honored to support them in their struggle.
