A Newsletter from the District 4 Civil Rights & Equity Committee

This month, CWA District 4 would like to share a few of the things happening in your state. African Americans have made many contributions to our organization and in the communities where we live and work. We should all take part in any activities that will help make a difference in the lives of others. There are many opportunities to help fight back against the many injustices and discriminatory practices that most of us see happening much too often.

Some of us are witnesses and, unfortunately, some are victims. Regardless, working together, all of us can make a difference no matter where we’re from, what we look like, or where we’ve been. In District 4, we have a long history of being UNITED no matter what our differences, and we hope to build upon that tradition for many years to come!
