This year marked the third year that the NAACP Riverside Branch honored labor unions as they saluted local heroes during the third annual “Salute to Labor Awards Red Carpet Dinner and Dance”. The event was held at the Riverside Convention Center with this year’s theme being Two Movements One Goal—United We Win. For over 70 years, the Riverside NAACP has sought to reaffirm and honor people in the community who have exhibited outstanding traits of leadership as well as a belief promoting diversity and equality. At this salute to labor event, over 300 union loyalists and “Friends of Labor” came together to honor and say thank you to the countless men and women who served as the very fabric of our great nation and whose contributions to their communities are endless. “We can’t thank them enough for their years of outstanding service to our communities,” said Labor Union Awards Chair and NAACP Second VP Sharron Lewis-Campbell.
