As a massive uprising against racism sweeps the U.S., much attention has been turned to the issue of police unions. The MLK Labor Council in Seattle took the major step of expelling that area’s police union from labor’s governing regional body. BreakThrough interviewed Nicole Grant, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the MLK Labor Council about what led the council to take these steps and how it fits in with their broader vision for racial and economic justice.

At Breakthrough News we believe in the power of independent media. Five mega-corporations dominate the media landscape — controlling 90% of what we read, watch and listen to. They control the news cycle, to which social media and even most “alternative” media is forced to respond. We are breaking through that cycle.
We tell the untold stories of resistance from poor and working-class communities — because out of these stories we will construct a different narrative of the world, as it is and in real time.
People’s movements in every corner of the globe are changing history and shifting consciousness. But these movements barely receive any coverage from the corporate media. They need visibility. They need amplification. They need a media arm to break through.
We can be that media arm, but only with your help. Become a Patron and join us on the front lines in the battle of ideas.
