CWA Veterans Come Together for Social Change

Fourteen military veterans from across CWA completed the first ever CWA Veterans for Social Change Training Institute last week. The training is part of the CWA Veterans for Social Change program to develop and organize a broad base of CWA activists who are veterans or currently serving in the military.

The training covered the unique role of service members in the working class; people-powered social justice efforts; how to craft, deliver, and present resonant messages; grassroots organizing; lobbying; and more. The CWA veterans in this program will continue to apply their knowledge and skills from the training to various ongoing campaigns, including supporting CWA-endorsed candidates in the 2020 elections.

The training was conducted in partnership with Common Defense and the Veterans Organizing Institute.
