Service + Solidarity Spotlight: Watch: Women Members of BAC Contribute to Their Union and the Building Trades

Liliana Calderon of BAC

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.
