Around Southern California and at other tech hubs nationwide, video game workers (and other tech workers) are trying to unionize. Emma Kinema co-founded Game Workers Unite!, and she organizes the LA and Orange County chapters.

Most recently, she’s joined forces with the Communications Workers of America (CWA), the largest communications and media labor union in the United States. She’s leading its Campaign to Organize Digital Employees (CODE).
