If there were a leadership yearbook, what would your yearbook superlative be and why?

“Best Slogans to Inspire the Fight for $15 and a Union” ex, “You can’t raise a shorty on $8.40”

What is one of your proudest leadership moments during the past year and why? Feel free to share more than one.

Turning people out to support the fight for $15 in Detroit.

Looking ahead to this year, what do you want to be the next step in your development as a leader? How will that step help our movement for economic and racial justice?

Close to retirement, but wants to continue fight to improve conditions for children and grandchildren.

Anything else you would like to add?

We’re all blessed by the best!
