The Black Collar Award is the National Black Worker Center Project’s annual recognition of an individual who inspires, supports and works tirelessly to achieve social and worker justice for African Americans.
This individual works to end the Black jobs crisis by:
- Confronting racism and oppression as barriers to social change and healthy human relations
- Building multicultural community and solidarity
- Achieving diversity in membership, leadership, and staffing
- Removing workplace barriers through the pursuit of racial justice and inclusion.
This award celebrates acting in solidarity with Black workers in the quest for racial and economic justice. It represents triumph in the face of adversity, and a demonstrated commitment to dismantling systemic oppression through community building and courageous leadership.
It is our way to show gratitude for those continuing the legacy by standing on the shoulders of the giants who have paved the way before us, while blazing a new path for those still to come.
