Memorial for Bromley Armstrong


Last month we buried a tireless defender and champion of human rights. Bromley L. Armstrong helped found the Toronto Joint Labour Committee on Human Rights, CARIBANA, Urban Alliance on Race Relations, and the Jamaican Canadian Association in his nine decade lifetime of leadership. His legacy lives on in the union activists that continue his work, demanding justice and fighting against racism, acknowledged by the annual Bromley L. Armstrong Award.

On Monday, September 17th, the Labour Toronto and York Labour Council along with Coalition of Black Trade Unionists, Urban Alliance on Race Relations and The Jamaican Canadian Association will hold a memorial for Bromley at the OFL Building from 6-8pm, with music, speakers and video remembrances of his amazing journey.

Every union activist in Canada should know the story of Bromley – his work absolutely represents our core values. Watch the videos “Welcome to Dresden” and “Welcome to Canada” at
