The New York Amsterdam News and Bill Lynch Associates are making preparations to present the second “Tying Communities Together Labor Awards Breakfast: A Celebration of New York’s Labor Movement.”

The event will take place Thursday, Sept. 20, from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Alhambra Ballroom, located at 2116 Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard in Harlem.

This year’s honorees are George Gresham, 1199 SEIU president; Lillian Roberts, DC 37 executive director; and Hazel Dukes, New York NAACP chapter president.

The New York Amsterdam News has been serving the Black community in New York City since 1909 and has a rich history of staunch support for the city’s labor movement, from workers to union presidents. This event not only upholds that legacy, but also acknowledges and pays tribute to the bond that the Black press has always held with the working classes.
