CENSUS DAY IS APRIL 1, 2020. Have you completed your questionnaire to help shape your future?
The 2020 census is important for women's health and the health of our families. Census data is used to help determine federal funding for vital health care programs like Medicaid, Title X (reproductive health programs), the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), and maternal/child health initiatives. New for 2020--you can complete the census online, by phone, or by mail. Learn more about why filling out the 2020 census is important for women's health here.

Women’s stories are our strength. We draw inspiration from women who came before us—and from women living and working among us today. Women are part of our individual and collective stories, and a truly balanced and inclusive history recognizes women's ongoing contributions to global society.

March 24, 2020: Today marks 46 years since CLUW's founding convention in Chicago, IL, on March 23-24, 1974. CLUW takes great pride in serving and connecting union women for as long as we have. We thank all our members for being a part of our historic movement. On this important anniversary, we ask: what are you going to do to move union women forward?
If you are interested in accessing some of CLUW's historical records, they are archived at the Walter P. Reuther Library (Wayne State University). The website can be accessed here. The records document the administration and activities of CLUW's national organization and its various chapters. Subjects such as affirmative action, pay equity, sex discrimination, child care and family issues, ERA and reproductive freedom are well documented.
