For Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month this year, the AFL-CIO is spotlighting various Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who have worked and continue to work at the intersection of civil and labor rights in the United States. Today’s profile is Kyla Hsia.
Kyla Hsia is a senior digital strategist at AFL-CIO and a member of the Washington-Baltimore News Guild (TNG-CWA). She recently joined the AFL-CIO team after sitting at the bargaining table for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s staff union. She thought: why isn’t everyone doing this?! And so she jumped into the labor movement by joining the AFL-CIO.
