AFT-Maryland at Community Trunk-or-Treat Event

Share This

AFT-Maryland’s holiday spirit was on full display at the 2nd annual Trunk-or-Treat event in the parking lot of Baltimore's Arena Players, the oldest continuously performing and historically African-American community theatre in the United States. Just as last year, community groups and activists had voter registration information and of course candy and snacks for the trick-or-treaters in attendance. The community in the historic Madison neighborhood showed their appreciation for the effort. Children were eager to get candy while adults were grateful for the voter registration and community information. 

The event was a collaboration between AFT-Maryland, the National Action Network-Greater Baltimore Chapter, A. Philip Randolph Institute, Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, and the Coalition of Labor Union Women. AFT-Maryland and our affiliate locals have members who are also involved with all of these organizations. The joint effort of these organizations and the state federation demonstrates our commitment to community and civic engagement. This work echoes the call of AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler that unions fight for democracy in the workplace and democracy in our everyday lives.
