Women's History Month Profiles: Christine Cambizaca

Christine Cambizaca

This year, for Women's History Month, we're taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making women's history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today's profile is Christine Cambizaca of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC).

In addition to being a proud member of NALC Connecticut Merged Branch 20, Christine Cambizaca is also a hero to her community. She had only been delivering mail for one month when she encountered a woman in danger. The woman had blood and bruises on her face and was being followed by a man with a knife. Cambizaca didn’t hesitate to offer her truck as a safe place for the woman to wait until police could apprehend the man. For her actions, Cambizaca was recognized as NALC 2022 National Hero of the Year.
