City and State magazine named Local 372 Executive Vice President Donald Nesbit one of labor’s top leaders in its annual 40 Under 40 issue.
Nesbit is an AFSCME Next Wave activist, and local union leader who chairs the DC 37 Political Action Committee and serves on the DC 37 Executive Board.
“I woke up this morning to this! In the midst of this pandemic, the nonstop phone calls and the school visits with our Essential Workers, who I need everyone to CLAP for, I totally forgot about this honor,” he said.
After congratulating all the honorees, Nesbit said there is plenty of room for other young activists and he urged their much needed participation.
“I do not except anything alone, I accept this honor on behalf of ALL the 24,000 Local 372 members who service and help nurture the lives of 1.2 million children who attend NYC schools! They are the reason that I do what I do!”
