SEIU 1021

East Bay Chapter Leaders Build Unity


On September 14, nearly 100 East Bay 1021 Chapter leaders spent the day strategizing, socializing, and building unity.

Laura Ocon, a member from La Clinica de la Raza, said “It’s so important to meet other people and get other perspectives on how we can become better together. The challenges we face are the same. Realizing that we aren’t alone is important. We have more in common than what people think.”

“This experience has been like a community within itself; as a new member coming in and also a new Chapter leader, this has really been an experience of learning and camaraderie. I’ve felt welcomed by my fellow SEIU 1021 leaders and it’s been really amazing,” said Sheleka Carter, a member from Alameda Health System.
