Pictured below are Angela Johnson, Vice President, Local 225 and Chairperson, SISTERS of Local 225.
SISTERS of Local 225 is a women’s committee formed in 2014 after attending our first IBEW Women’s Conference in San Antonio, Texas. “SISTERS” stands for Sisters In Solidarity Together Educate, Rally and Support. Reasons for forming this committee were to gain a sisterhood, to serve our union and community, to continue our education in our union and personal lives and to develop active Members and Leaders.
Recently, the SISTERS of Local 225 held a Rosie the Riveter Dice Run. The fundraiser was a success raising $1,508.00 for SOS, a multi-county agency that helps victims of sexual and domestic violence, child abuse and neglect in our communities.
The next project the SISTERS are working on is a Red Cross Blood Drive on January 29, 2016. No doubt with SISTERS involved it too will be a great success. Later projects will be the 2nd Annual Rosie the Riveter Dice Run and helping coordinate the IBEW 7th District Nuclear Summit.
The SISTERS are thankful for all their support and look forward everything 2016 has to offer. To learn more about Sisterhood in Action at LU 225 please visit their Facebook page at SISTERS of Local 225 - IBEW
