AFSCME Council 57’s Fifth Annual Leadership Conference Featured Lilly Ledbetter

Lilly Ledbetter was the featured speaker at AFSCME Council 57’s Fifth Annual Leadership Conference with the theme, Up to the Challenge: Solid Locals, Strong Community Alliances. Her courageous legal battle against pay discrimination with the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company is an inspiration to union leaders at a time when there are no easy victories. The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was the first bill President Obama signed after assuming office. See the video of a Conversation with Lilly Ledbetter and Cindy Chavez, (link to video) South Bay Labor Council Executive Officer.

Council 57 Leader Cheryll Grover had this to say: “I just spent the most inspirational weekend of my lifetime. Lilly Ledbetter came and opened our minds and our hearts. You don’t have to be a politician to change the world. You just have to DO it. Thank you Miss Lilly. I swear I will never forget you or the cause. Not one single day.”
