In today’s recording of JustLove, we discuss a prolonged topic highlighted by the violence in Ukraine, that of refugees and their resettlement in the United States. WE are joined by Kelly Agnew-Barajas who is the Director of the Catholic Charities Department of Refugee Resettlement here in New York City. Then, we acknowledge May Day weekend by having a conversation with the former Chair of the National Labor Relations Board, Wilma Liebman, J.D., about the current state of labor organizing in the country, such as at Amazon Fulfillment Center and Starbucks Stores.
Kelly Agnew-Barajas directs the Catholic Charities of New York refugee resettlement operations, and will join us to discuss what that line of work looks like, the scope of it, and how might the influx of Ukrainian refugees impact her work and that of similar missions.
Wilma Liebman, J.D., was the Chair of the National Labor Relations Board under the Obama Administration. She will share her thoughts on the contemporary wave of labor organizations and the changing landscape of collective bargaining.
