The Ethnic Minority Affairs Committee celebrated 35 years of making a difference in the MTA on December 5 and 6, 2014, as association members gathered for a conference featuring warm memories of the past and a message about the need to keep EMAC’s spirit of involvement alive.
The theme of the 35th anniversary conference, “Standing on a Great Foundation,” was reflected in the stories of several EMAC members who recounted how the Minority Affairs Committee — later renamed EMAC — grew over the years to become the driving force behind ethnic minority participation and advancement within the MTA.
Several of MTA’s earliest minority activists were on hand to tell their stories about becoming involved with MAC and explain its impact, both on their union and in their personal lives.
