This year 290,560 people in this country will be diagnosed with breast cancer. We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. CWA Local 1101 will be participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in the Bronx to help raise money to support patients, survivors and caregivers. We've been doing this walk for many years, and we're thrilled it's back in full swing in 2022!

This year as the nation recognizes it's 54th Hispanic Heritage Celebration, CWA National Women's Committee and the Committee on Civil Rights and Equity, share in the celebration with our Hispanic sisters and brothers and their families. Latinos today contribute towards the advancement of our communities across the country as public servants, veterans, teachers, small business owners, alongside many other professions. Hispanic Heritage Month allows us to recognize their achievements and contributions to our national story.
On this 21st anniversary of the attacks at the World Trade Center we remember the people we lost on that tragic day. We recognize the CWA members who were in the area, many of whom spent months and even years rebuilding the entire telecommunication network in lower Manhattan.
