FIRST-PERSON | Janell Hampton
As a part-timer, I had become more involved in my local’s actions
and issues because a friend brought me to a union meeting. She is
an old school organized labor wonk, and her invitation, offered
years ago, put me in a strong position to apply to become an
organizer in the CFT program called Political Leaders United to
Create Change, or PLUCC. My local union applied for the shared
grant-funded position and was awarded a grant.
