Local 79 celebrates Black history month

Thank you to everyone who was able to celebrate Black History Month with us at the end of February. We were joined by prominent journalist Desmond Cole, who drew parallels with his family’s history and personal experiences in Toronto with the ongoing challenges that Black Canadians face. NBA legend Jamaal Magloire also joined us and gave a deeply personal account of his life in Toronto and the NBA; he offered inspirational messages on how to overcome our day-to-day struggles.

We congratulate Equity Vice-President Avaline Miller on a successful (full house) event!  Watch video from the evening below:
