Black History Month Profiles: Celebrating a Pioneering Labor Leader in California, Doug Moore

February 10, 2016 Monika Greenhow

In honor of Black History Month, we wanted to spotlight one of California's most forward-thinking labor leaders, Doug Moore. Moore is the executive director of United Domestic Workers of America, AFSCME Local 3930, which is made up of more than 91,000 California home care workers. His union has made historical gains under his leadership, expanding membership by the thousands in recent years.

You can tell he cares deeply about his members, the broader workers’ rights movement and racial justice in our country. Let’s dive in.
