UMass Dartmouth Arnold M. Dubin Labor Education Center
Thanks to Everyone who helped with our first Women's Committee Breakfast
On Saturday,October 3, nearly 75 women and allies attended an event co-sponsored with the UMassD Labor Education Center and the Greater SE Mass Labor Council. We were honored to have a discussion led by Clayola Brown, civil rights and labor leader, as well as the president for the A. Phillip Randolph Institute within the AFL-CIO. Local musican, Candida Rose, led us "And Still I Rise" as other speakers inspired, called us to collective action, and led forward with two initatives, one for more women's labor education and another for women helping women by collecting interview clothes.
Deadline for tickets and ads extended to October 1
