CT People's World Amistad Awards: Together We Rise for a Hopeful Future

Date: 
Sat, 12/11/2021 - 4:00pm - 5:30pm

AFT Connecticut's social and economic justice community allies in the New Haven-based Connecticut People's World are celebrating the contributions of local labor activists and union leaders. Each is being recognized for their commitment to organizing priorities that address racial equity, climate change, voting rights, and the common good. They were also selected for fighting for the rights of essential - and all, regardless of immigrations status - workers during the pandemic. 

This year's honorees include:
 - State Sen. and legislative labor committee co-chair Julie Kushner;
 - Long Hill Bible Church Pastor Rodney Wade;
 - SEIU, Local 32BJ leader Azucena Santiago; &
 - NAACP Windham/Willimantic Brand President (and retired AFT Connecticut union member) Leah Ralls.
