CWA Secretary-Treasurer Annie Hill and committee members meet.
Members of CWA's National Civil Rights and Equity Committee and the National Women's Committee met in Washington D.C. this week. On the agenda was writing the annual reports that summarize the committee's work and priorities for members, as called for by the CWA Constitution. Report topics include payday lending, voter suppression, and the FAMILY Act.
The newly expanded committees include representatives from all CWA sectors.
Committee members also began planning for the biennial conferences that will be held concurrently in June in Las Vegas. Joint plenary sessions will be held, with specific workshops that will focus on helping participants develop skills to expand CWA's human right initiatives.
CWA's Ad Hoc Committee also met this week and reviewed the Human Rights department activities for 2013 and work planned for 2014.
"It was a very productive three days for all three committees with much discussion on how to build the movement through Human Rights," said CWA Secretary-Treasurer Annie Hill.
