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.
SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris hosted an online event marking Women’s Equality Day and the centennial anniversary of women’s suffrage. “Today’s discussion is a celebration of all women’s voices and all women’s votes,” Carteris explained. “Today, all women have the right to vote, but the struggle for equal access continues. So today we’re going to celebrate what it means for women to collectively use their power, their voices, their votes to affect change. It’s also important that women have a voice in legislation that affects women.” Secretary-Treasurer Shuler joined the conversation, along with members of SAG-AFTRA and Jasmine Jones, organizing director of Rock the Vote.
