    Frederick Douglass died on this date. In an 1857 address Douglass said, “If there is no struggle, there is no progress.

But we are also more expansive in our approach fighting for workplace protections against harassment and discrimination, demanding LGBTQ+ rights, advocating for clean building practices and green investments that protect our environment and address climate change; and ensuring a healthy work-life balance for all employees… CommonWealth
