In October 2019, the Confederation of Canadian Unions (CCU) held its 50th Anniversary Convention in Ottawa.
Katrina Miller of the Broadbent Institute spoke to the CCU about the work of the Institute, fighting corporate propaganda, and the well-funded social media tactics of the Alt Right. She also answered questions about how progressives and unions can better use Facebook and other social media, the divisive campaign tactics of the Right, newspaper bias, and how to confront those opposed to labour unions.
Katrina Miller is the Program Director for the Broadbent Institute, driving the Institute’s policy, campaign and communications work to build the progressive landscape in Canada. She has over 17 years of experience as a communications and public policy strategist working with a wide array of labour, community, and other non-government organizations to promote progressive social policy.
