CWA Next Generation

Next Gen in DC

Next Generation is a network of thousands of union members 35 and under in all districts and sectors who are mobilizing in support of CWA’s mission and goals. By contributing to  CWA’s core programs—including CWA Strong, Human Rights, Organizing, and Political Action—and strengthening our ties with local, regional, and national allies, we are building a robust foundation for the future of the labor movement. Our work is spearheaded by a team of Lead Activists who guide and advocate for our members.

Above all, CWA Next Gen is helping young workers contribute their knowledge, energy, and commitment to CWA’s fight for economic and social justice. If you're a CWA member who is 35 or under and want to learn and lead, you belong in Next Gen.

Join us.
