CWA President Chris Shelton issued the following statement:
Events of the past week have shaken our nation. Violent extremists have targeted African-Americans, Jewish Americans and political leaders, and the Trump administration has declared its intention to dehumanize transgender and gender non-conforming members of our communities.
I call on all CWA members and retirees to honor those who lost their lives this week in Jeffersontown, Ky. and Pittsburgh, Pa. by re-dedicating themselves to the fight for justice. We must put our union values into action by building stronger connections within our communities and by confronting white supremacist and anti-semitic ideologies at every opportunity.
