IAM Local 1406 member Trevar Smedal was one of four union members who took part in “The Call to Unite,” a 24-hour star-studded live stream created by former television host Oprah Winfrey and disability rights activist Tim Shriver to unite the country in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.
The program included inspiring stories, song, dance, meditation, and prayers from dozens of stars from around the country, including a special segment dedicated to union members working tirelessly on the ground to keep America going.
