“Power is the ability to achieve purpose. Power is the ability to affect change.”
Quote from a Speech Given by Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. to Sanitation Workers Striking in Memphis, March 18, 1968

We’re very excited to invite you to TWU Powered UP political grassroots training. TWU Powered UP trains members to become political activists in their states and within their workplaces. We know that power structures in the U.S. have steadily shifted against labor unions and the working class for decades and more than ever we need to be prepared. Activists in training will hear from TWU Government Affairs and COPE department staff, and experts on learning best practices in communicating effectively with members using modern day technology, activating members to be more involved in their communities and states in order to bolster more organizing drives and issue-based campaigns. We welcome TWU locals to sponsor interested and talented members to attend this 2-day training.
