ICYMI, Camille Thurman shared her #MeToo story in Allegro. Camille writes: "After reading the countless stories of women from all disciplines who have fought fearlessly as they struggle to deconstruct oppression and acts of subjugation, it's my duty to share my own experiences with fellow Local 802 members and the community at large." Read Camille's story here.
Raise your voice with Local 802 on Saturday, Jan. 20 at the
2018 Women's March on NYC!

"NYC will raise its voice again to demand equality for all humans. Over the past year, basic rights for women, immigrants, LGBTQ+, the religious and nonreligious, people of color and even Mother Earth have struggled to survive under the weight of the current administration. America's First Amendment has been challenged and healthcare for millions has been threatened. We must stand together to demand and defend our rights. We will not be silent! Join us and let your voice echo from the streets of New York City to the capital city. Show the world that red, white and blue are colors of tolerance."
-- Women's March Alliance
