Progressive Speakers Bureau Begun

In late July, 2017, we began featuring qualified speakers that are available for presentations.

Lewis Fulbright

Lewis Fulbright is the principal officer of the Dallas AFL-CIO. He is a long time activist with the American Postal Workers Union. As head of the Dallas County labor movement, Fulbright oversees policies of progressive outreach to civil rights, church, and community groups because he strongly believes that all working people must help one another.
Lewis Fulbright's duties are extensive  and include evenings as well as daytime duties, but he tries to make himself available for every progressive group that needs his help.
Contact Lewis by email or at 214-826-4808.
