Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Saru Jayaraman about communities of color organizing.
As the states of Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Georgia, flip from red to blue in the Presidential election, we turn our focus on how working-class communities of color put in the tremendous work to make this possible. The presumptive President elect Joe Biden would likely not have won the margins in swings states that he needed were it not for these crucial constituencies.
Saru Jayaraman, President of One Fair Wage and Assistant Adjunct Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Food Labor Research Center at University of California, Berkeley.
