‘Breaking Barriers’: WSLC thanks all participants, sponsors

AFL-CIO Shuler: Empowering women, girls is key to creating brighter future


SEATTLE (March 14, 2022) — To celebrate International Women’s Day, the Women’s Committee of the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO held its “Breaking Barriers: Challenge Course & Community Kickback” on Saturday in the Machinists District 751 parking lot in Seattle. Multiple unions and their members participated in a 10-challenge obstacle course representing the barriers that working women face and overcome every day. It was a fun event not only to celebrate women, but also to build community within labor as we hope to begin emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The WSLC would like to thank all those who participated in the event, and particularly the sponsoring unions: Washington State Education and Research Center, SEIU 775, Group Health Foundation, IAM District 751, Teamsters Local 117, Washington Federation of State Employees/AFSCME Council 28, IUPAT District Council 5, Washington State Nurses Association, SEIU State Council, and AFGE.

Below are some photos from the event and a special message from AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler to the event’s participants.
