We are a powerhouse group of labor union women, femmes, and allies making a difference in the metropolitan D.C. area labor community. As a chapter of the Coalition of Labor Union Women we are proud to advocate for and advance issues impacting labor union women and femmes. 

Upcoming Fundraiser - Tues., Mar. 12

In celebration of Women's History Month, Metro DC CLUW is kicking things off with a Headshot Happy Hour Fundraiser. This is an engaging way to help raise funds for our growing chapter. Here's how it works: in exchange for a $25 donation to our Metro DC CLUW chapter, participants will get a professional headshot taken by our very own Ash Newkirk.

Come celebrate Women's History Month with Metro DC CLUW and a new headshot for LinkedIn, speaking engagements, or just as a way to treat yourself.

Click the link below to register for the event! We're pleased to have IBEW host us at their headquarters for this event.

Date: Tuesday, March 12
Time: 5p - 6:30 p
Location: IBEW Headquarters (900 Seventh Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001)
