    Labor Quote: Andrea Blackwelder Stanley

    Stanley is the IATSE 22 member who said that the display of flags on the National Mall at last week’s inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris -- set up by members of her local -- “represents opportunity. Opportunity to earn a living wage and to make something beautiful to lift the hearts and spirits of a nation that is mourning so much loss and division. To me, it represents all the people of the U.S. coming together as one to be healed.”
