Covid-19: Labor Unions and Frontline Workers

New York State might have "flattened the curve," but the country’s largest metropolitan area is still grappling with the effects of the coronavirus. Neighborhoods with many low-income residents have been hit disproportionately hard, and people of color are twice as likely to die from Covid-19. Kelley Cabrera is a registered nurse at the Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, where she is also the president of the labor bargaining unit for the NY State Nurses Association (NYSNA). She joins Dr. Frank Proscia, president of the Doctors Council, to discuss the challenges resulting from New York State's lack of preparedness as well as the positive impact labor unions have had in advocating for front line workers.

This conversation was produced by CITY WORKS, a project of the School of Labor and Urban Studies at the City University of New York and CUNYTV.

Hujar, Wojnarowicz: Art, AIDS & Challenge of Retrospection

1980’s Art – turbulent and provocative – arose out of the AIDS epidemic. Two major art exhibits on view in New York City – one universally-acclaimed a must-see, the other overwhelmingly-anticipated:Peter Hujar: Speed of Life (Morgan, through May 20) and David Wojnarowicz: History Keeps Me Awake at Night (Whitney, July 13 – Sept 30). The artists’ lives were singular and intertwined: personal and political, formal and furious, playful and profane. What does this Art and the lives of these masterful artists have to do with the art and activism of today? The Hujar retrospective ends before the Wojnarowicz retrospective arrives. Laura Flanders and her guests bring the exhibits together in a frank and probing discussion: David Kiehl of the Whitney, Joel Smith of the Morgan, Pamela Sneed, educator, poet, performer, author, artist.
