Washington, D.C.

On Monday, CWA Secretary-Treasurer Sara Steffens and Public, Healthcare, and Education Workers Sector Vice President Margaret Cook joined the Women’s Moral Monday March on Washington to take action in support of voting rights for all, an end to the filibuster, and a federal minimum wage of $15 an hour. After a rally at the Supreme Court, the participants marched toward the Capitol and were arrested for blocking traffic.

The march was held on the anniversary of the 1848 Seneca Falls Women’s Convention, which was a key moment in the fight for women’s right to vote.
