On Wednesday, eight military veterans from across CWA District 3 graduated from the Veterans Organizing Institute (VOI). They participated in the VOI as 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 was conducted virtually and 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 District 3 veterans who went through this training will continue to apply their knowledge and skills from the training to various ongoing campaigns, including the fight to protect our voting rights, reform our democracy, and pass critical pro-worker legislation.
The training was conducted in partnership with Common Defense and the Veterans Organizing Institute.
