AFSA President Diann Woodard’s Statement on Confirmation of Tom Perez as Next Secretary of the Department of Labor

AFSA commends the U.S. Senate for confirming Tom Perez as the next Secretary of the Department of Labor.
Throughout Perez’s career he has fought to expand access to education and health care, end housing discrimination practices, eliminate hate crimes, hold employers accountable when they cheat workers, protect the right of every American to vote, and support fair immigration reform policies. The real interests of working men and women will be well represented through his leadership.

AFSA looks forward to working with, and fighting alongside Mr. Perez, as he takes on his new role as Secretary of Labor.
