Danny_Donohue_official_smallDear CSEA Sisters and Brothers,

The fights for women’s rights and workers’ rights are woven into the fabric of our nation’s history. We owe so much to those who envisioned a world where everyone would be entitled to the same rights and opportunities, both on and off the job. Some believed in this vision so fiercely, they willingly put their safety and their lives on the line, knowing they were bravely helping to move our nation forward.

So much has changed, and yet so much remains the same. We have achieved great things, thanks to the dedication and perseverance of those who came before us. Unfortunately, workers’ rights and women’s rights are still under attack, and there is still much work to be done. It’s going to take a well-informed and engaged union membership to stand up and protect what so many before us fought and died for. We have a responsibility to ourselves and to future generations to keep marching toward true fairness and opportunity for all.

The Women’s Conference is designed to give you the tools you need to keep our union moving forward. We are so proud of the dedicated and hard-working members that make up the CSEA family. Thank you for being here and for showing us that you carry with you the same vision of fairness and equality that brought us together over 100 years ago.

I hope that you enjoy the conference!

In solidarity,
Danny Donohue
