UFCW 1189 endorsed candidate for Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan will be the guest speaker at the Wednesday June 20 General Membership (Union) Meeting in Duluth. Members and their guests are invited to attend the meeting and hear from Peggy how she and Rep. Tim Walz (UFCW 1189 endorse candidate for Governor) plan to make Minnesota better for working people like our members. The meeting is being held in Hall "B" of the Duluth Labor Temple.
"The principle of Peggy’s professional, political and personal life is giving back, particularly to children, families, communities of color, American Indians and low-income and working people. A noted community and political organizer, Peggy is a partner with The Management Center, an organization dedicated to helping leaders working for social change. She formerly served as the executive director of Children’s Defense Fund-Minnesota (CDF), a non-profit child-advocacy organization working to level the playing field for all children in our region and state. While at CDF, Peggy co-chaired the Raise The Wage campaign, the successful fight to raise Minnesota’s minimum wage for the first time in nearly a decade."
