About Kian Frederick:
Kian Frederick currently serves as the New York State Director of the Citizens Trade Campaign, a coalition partner with Public Citizen Global Trade Watch, labor unions, faith, community and environmental groups focused on global trade. She became involved in the campaign against the TPP and Fast Track because of the direct threat the rise in global corporate power presents to our democracy and the quality of life for our children and grandchildren.
Kian began her career as a union organizer and activist over 20 years ago when she led a strike of her UNITE HERE, Local 100, co-workers and won. Kian soon became a union rep, negotiator, educator, researcher and was the first rank & file member and first woman in her local to be elected to executive office. She has worked on numerous organizing and issue campaigns with UNITE HERE, Professional Staff Congress-CUNY/AFT, Association of Flight Attendants/CWA, SEIU, the national AFL-CIO and many other local unions and community groups in New York and Miami.
Kian's volunteer work includes the 2010 “99ers” campaign, organizing the unemployed, which resulted in introduction of legislation to extend unemployment benefits. Kian is known as an “organizer's organizer” and is proud to serve as a mentor and adviser to many new organizers and organizations. She holds a Masters of Science in Labor Studies and Economics and lives in New York City.
