To the Left: The PRO Act & Organizing in the South

Last week, Aja co-hosted a panel about the PRO Act and Organizing in the South along with Nolan Huber-Rhoades, as presented by Atlanta DSA. Aja & Nolan interview labor organizers from Communication Workers of America, Kellie Morgan (Political Director, International Union of Painters and Allied Trades), and James Williams (President, Atlanta North Georgia Labor Council). This episode also features additional insights and contexts from Aja regarding the PRO Act, informed by various interviews and research regarding the legislation and how it will impact workers, particularly freelancers and independent contractors. TLDR: it’s good, and we all need the PRO Act. Listen to learn why.
