Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we’ll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.
The Bricklayers (BAC) had a great turnout at the first virtual Women Build Nations Conference earlier this month. In a video shown at the convention, some of BAC’s female members talked about their contributions and experiences being a part of the union. Liliana Calderon said, “Let’s shoot as high as we can to have and retain new members, especially women and minorities.” Calderon, a member of BAC Local 21 in Illinois, received one of the North America’s Building Trades Unions’ (NABTU’s) first-ever Tradeswomen Heroes Award.
