"CWA Women for Political Power" is a new program mobilizing CWAers to support candidates who will adopt policies important to working women.
CWA District 4 Vice President Linda Hinton is leading the program, with support from women members of the CWA Executive Board, the National Women's Committee, and CWA's Legislative and Human Rights Departments.
The program is up and running in 20 states. CWA women activists will leaflet worksites and mobilize CWA women, with the goals of electing Hillary Clinton to be the first female president of the United States and spotlighting the power of women workers to move the country forward on issues like paid sick leave, fair pay, and others.
"We're energizing CWA women across our union to show that we can make progressive change at every level of government," said Hinton. "CWA women are leading the way when it comes to fighting for the issues that working women care about."
