20th Annual Faith Labor Breakfast
April 28, 8:00-10:00 am
Christ Presbyterian Church, 944 E Gorham St | Madison
Join Worker Justice Wisconsin for this celebration of the 20th Annual Breakfast, followed by the South Central Federation of Laborâ€™s Workersâ€™ Memorial Day Remembrance.Â
Our keynote speaker, Alexis Herman, was the first African American Secretary of Labor, and has been a tireless champion for the important role of diversity in society and the workplace.Â As Secretary, she focused on aÂ prepared workforce, a secure workforce, and quality workplaces. She led the effort to institute aÂ global child labor standard and launched the most aggressive unemployed youth initiative since the 1970â€™s.Â Under her tenure, unemployment in the country reached a thirty-year low, andÂ witnessed the safest workplace record in the history of the Department of Labor.Â Alexis Hermanâ€™s actions as Secretary were a reflection of her understanding of the needs of Americaâ€™s workers and the challenges they faced as this nation approached the 21stÂ Century.
In her public service, as well as her non- profit work, Ms. Herman has served the last five Presidents of the United States, both Democratic and Republican. Her nonprofit work today includes: serving as a Trustee for the National Urban League, Co-Chair of the Bush Clinton Presidential Leadership Scholars, a member of the Executive Board of her Sorority, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and President of the Dorothy I. Height Educational Foundation.
Breakfast Tickets are $50, and include a full, hot breakfast (Scrambled eggs, sausage, pancakes, hash Browns, Fruit and Coffee) plus a yearly membership in Worker Justice Wisconsin.Â Your support makes the difference for the programs we provide!
