Tefere Gebre is Executive Vice President of the AFL-CIO. Gebre is the first immigrant elected as an officer in the federation’s history. At 14-years-old, Gebre escaped war-torn Ethiopia, walking for weeks to Sudan. He lived in a Sudanese refugee camp until he was fifteen, when he was granted political refuge status and arrived in Los Angeles alone.
Lindolfo Carballo is Director of Casa de Virginia. CASA de Virginia’s mission is to work with the Virginia low-income immigrant and Latino community to improve the quality of life and fight for equal treatment and full access to resources and opportunities for all.
