Dunn Street founder and Community Organiser Stephen Donnelly was joined by organiser and founder of the Amazon Labor Union, Christian Smalls. 

At the height of COVID pandemic, Amazon employee, Christian Smalls went from being an essential worker to unemployed overnight to then attracting international interest when he and his fellow workers became the first to successfully organise an Amazon warehouse facility in the United States. 

In this special episode, Chris shares his courageous journey from NBA hoop dreams, to setting up Amazon warehouse facilities across the north east of the United States. 

Then Chris’s path in life changed when he led a workout of his fellow workers from the Staten Island facility during the pandemic.
