The UWF Membership Convention is coming up on Saturday, September 22nd from 10 am - 2 pm at the Chicago Teachers Union. Have you registered yet?
It's going to be a packed day where UWF members will:
- Vote on the strategies to win in 2019, 2020, and beyond
- Make a plan for building the people-powered political organization we need
- Elect party delegates and the future leadership of our organization
Do you know someone who would be a great at-large party delegate? Are you interested in running? If so, submit a nomination form!
At this year's convention, two at-large delegate seats are open and four at-large delegates--Roberto Clack, Manny Diaz, Mayra Lopez, and Jay Travis--are running for re-election. As a reflection of our commitment to racial and gender justice, the Party Committee strongly encourages women of color to consider running for UWF leadership.
