The mission of the Human Rights Equity and Women’s Committee is to bring about awareness of current social issues and create new activists within our union to build coalitions and promote the principles of CWA STRONG among our membership.  Our shared prosperity depends upon embracing our shared humanity and mutual respect for one another. We strive to arm our members with the information, structure, tools, and messaging to fight back on the local level. With an emphasis on local movement building and activism rooted in issues of civil and human rights, CWA and its members have the power to effect positive change for all workers.
