PRO Act Town Hall
July 27, 2021 • 6:30 P.M. EDT

The Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act is the most sweeping overhaul of labor law in decades. It would empower workers to come together to fight for better pay, safe working conditions and more time to spend with family. This critical piece of legislation has passed the House of Representatives and already has 47 co-sponsors in the Senate.

Join OPEIU members, organizers and our guests (to be announced) as we come together to learn how the PRO Act could impact our union and entire labor movement for the better.

MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: Chelsea Bland, Chair, Local 2 LGBTQIA+ Committee

Chelsea Bland is a full-time unionist, in and out of the workplace. As a union communication professional, she supports the American Federation of Governmental Employees' communication department. And as a member of her own union, OPEIU Local 2 in Washington, D.C., she's played an active role in developing the local union's internal LGBTQIA+ Committee.

In 2015, Bland agreed to chair the committee and begin to develop its structure and goals. "I thought this was an opportunity to become more active inside of our union," she says.
