“My mom has worked union jobs, so I knew what workers can accomplish together,” said Anita Ibarra, a 2017 Union Summer intern. “As Union Summer interns, we participated in campaigns with workers all over the region. Union Summer has led to so many opportunities and experiences that have continued even after this summer. I really grew personally from these experiences. I have learned to believe in myself so I can lead others and help them fight for themselves.”

If you have any questions, email WSLC Field Mobilization Director Cherika Carter or call her at 206-281-8901.
