All proceeds from the Art of Labor will go to support the Teamsters Local 117 Jayme Biendl Working Womxn’s Scholarship Fund. Per the local: “This scholarship fund is intended to support working Teamster womxn and their dependents. The Jayme Biendl Working Womxn’s scholarship was established in memory of Officer Jayme Biendl of the Monroe Correctional Complex who was killed in the line of duty in 2011. In 2024, the Teamsters Local 117 Womxn’s Committee will award three scholarships to qualified womxn members and dependents. The term “womxn” is used to be inclusive of all people who identify as women. The scholarship must be used for continuing education or a training/vocational program.”
