Through its Next Generation program, the Communications Workers of America (CWA) is connecting members aged 35 and under with seasoned member-mentors over the age of 35 to form a network of committed union activists across the country. Next Gen activists bring youthful energy and unique insights to the task of advancing economic and social justice. We are fighting for:
- Good Jobs
- Healthcare for All
- Bargaining and Organizing Rights
- Retirement Security
- Democracy and Economic Justice
Next Gen members embrace creative organizing approaches and new media in order to mobilize and empower workers. And we are building strong alliances with progressive allies, including students, immigrant rights advocates, LGBTQ activists, and environmentalists. We know we’re all in this together.
If you’re a CWA member who is 35 or under and want to learn and lead, you belong in Next Gen.
If you’re a CWA member who is over 35 and willing to share your experience as a Member-Mentor, Next Gen needs you.
Be part of CWA’s future.
