What is Senate Bill S. Res. 218?
This Senate resolution would honor the legacy of African-American civil rights leader A. Philip Randolph. Randolph organized and led the first predominately African-American labor union, the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters. He also led the March on Washington Movement, a civic engagement tool with the goal of the desegregation of the armed forces and fair labor standards for African Americans. The March on Washington Movement led to President Franklin D. Roosevelt to issue Executive Order 8802, which banned discrimination in the armed forces during World War II.
