Leaders of Labor

When I saw the honorees that I was amongst, it excited me. A lot of them are peers, a lot of them I’ve worked with in the past, and I plan to work with them in the future. It’s amazing to see how many people came from my council as well that have been on it. Coming here, the overwhelming feeling that Schneps brought to me, the welcoming and love, it felt like a family reunion.
