Acting Local: Community Boards Need Tradeswomen

At our January Membership Meeting, Community Board member and 25 year carpenter Tammy Rivera taught us the value of community boards for tradespeople: have a powerful influence over the kind of construction projects and conditions for workers in your neighborhood, while growing your public speaking skills, getting comfortable with local politicians and politics, and being a hero in your union.

Click your borough below for the application to join your community board. Make sure to tell your union leaders that you want to apply so they can put in a good word for you with your borough president.
