Women play a key role in the labor movement. Their involvement is important to economic growth, political stability and social transformation. The conference theme, “Women Rising: Unite the Fight” highlights the importance of the role our Sisters play in today’s Labor
Movement and focuses on providing our Sisters with the tools and encouragement to become strong leaders. I encourage our lodges to consider sending delegates to this important event.
Questions should be directed to the Women’s Department at 301-967-4747.
