"It's increasingly hard for workers to be able to prove discrimination based on race, gender, and sexual orientation." — Evelyn Rangel Medina, Executive Director, ROC-The Bay
More than 50 years after the passage of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, racial discrimination in workplaces is commonplace, and threatens to worsen given the racist rhetoric espoused during the president-elect's campaign and the corresponding behavior it sanctions. In this video, worker rights activists and researchers explore some of the barriers to racial equity in the workplace, as well as some of the solutions.
