Solidarity Center Report: Two Reports on Africa(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)Just in time for the White House’s 2014 Africa Summit (Aug. 4-6), the Solidarity Center has released two key reports on African working people and their unions. In “African Trade Unions and Africa’s Future,” union leaders from a broad spectrum of sub-Saharan African countries discuss their strategies for addressing challenges such as the growth of the informal economy and the struggle for decent jobs amid economic hardship and globalization. “NIGERIA: Empowering Women, Transforming Society” spotlights a woman-run grassroots coalition in the Niger Delta that provides a platform for women and young people to effectively engage in the democratic political process, hold local lawmakers accountable and achieve concrete goals in their communities (available in English and Spanish).
