CWA Activists Join Forces for a More Equitable Society at CLUW Convention
CWA activists joined forces with union members and coalition partners from across the country last week to participate in the 22nd Biennial Coalition of Labor Union Women Convention (CLUW) in Minneapolis, Minn.
This year's convention theme was "Hear us Roar…as We Get Ready for 2024!" and focused on the importance of networking, information-sharing, and building a stronger labor movement in the upcoming election year.
Attendees worked together to set new goals and frame clearer objectives for our movement. Panels were held to discuss the multitude of challenges facing women across all demographics.
Convention attendees were inspired by featured speakers CWA President Claude Cummings Jr., Senator Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), and CWA Chief of Staff and CLUW Board Member Sylvia J. Ramos. CWA Public Health and Education Workers (PHEW) Vice President Margret Cook also attended the convention.
CWA Member Vonda Wilkins of Local 7019 said, “Attending this year’s convention left me feeling more powerful as a Unionist, a woman, and an organizer, and reminded me that we [CWA] members aren’t fighting this fight alone for a more equitable society.”
