The worker organizers of IUPAT, LiUNA, and the Team at Fuerza Laboral particularly those who have worked on drives at Goodison Shipyard in Quonset. Their brave and relentless commitment to improving the lives and safety of all workers is a model we should all strive for.
The Step Up Coalition this youth led organization has organized and worked for true police accountability in Providence. The creativity and relentless adherence to democracy and inclusion points us to a path to building a new and better society.
Lastly but certainly not least UFCW 328 and the workers of Eastland Foods and Bob's Tires. The leadership of UFCW shows true vision and Working Class excellence in building a labor movement that is intersectional and winning.
