Historical NoteReturn to Top

The national A. Philip Randolph Institute was co-founded in 1965 by A. Philip Randolph and Bayard Rustin, in 1965 to forge an alliance between the civil rights movement and the labor movement. APRI is now an American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations constituency group, representing black trade unionists within the AFL-CIO. APRI-Seattle Chapter is dedicated to developing programs that will "extend democracy to those who have been traditionally disfranchised or discouraged from participating in the political system, strengthening political alliances needed to assure democratic social change and projecting social and economic programs that will improve the lives of all Americans."
