THE FIGHT FORWARD

CWA takes its responsibility seriously as stewards of justice for the American working family. To accomplish this goal, we must fully embrace the truth: that human rights and the human condition are inextricably linked to the rights of all workers. We have witnessed concerted fear tactics designed to divide workers throughout our nation’s history. These divisions immeasurably dilute our power as a union: at the bargaining table, in our organizing efforts, and within our communities.

Shared prosperity depends upon embracing our shared humanity and mutual respect for one another and arm our members with the information, structure, tools, and messaging to fight back on the local level. With an emphasis on local movement building and activism rooted in issues of civil and human rights, the Fight Forward program will demonstrate that CWA and its members have the power to effect positive change for all workers.

 

The mission of the Human Rights Department's Fight Forward training is to bring about awareness of current social issues and create new activists within our union to build coalitions and promote the principles of CWA STRONG among our membershipRead more about the CWA STRONG FIGHT FORWARD.
