Coalition of Labor Women honors community leaders
In celebration of International Women’s Day, Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) Field Coordinators Rachel Bennett Steury and Meghan McKeefry attended an awards banquet hosted by the Chicago Chapter of The Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) last month.
Over 100 community leaders and activists gathered to honor several inspiring and dedicated women. Katie Jordan, President of CLUW Chicago, presented bread and roses to all the honorees.
Those honored include: Mary Jones (AFSCME), Sally Cheatem (CBTU), Jaquie Algee (SEIU), Lynda DeLaForgue (Citizen Action), Dorothy James (AFGE) and Lisa Madigan (Attorney General- State of Illinois).
Bennett Steury and McKeefry appreciated the opportunity to meet other women leaders and discuss with them the importance of AAM's work and the potential for future collaboration.
