United Working Families endorses Berwyn United slate in 2017 primary elections
From a press release
2017-02-14

BERWYN - United Working Families, an independent political organization powered by progressive labor and community organizations, today announced its endorsement of Berwyn United in the 2017 primary elections. Berwyn United is a 15-candidate slate mounting a progressive, volunteer-led challenge to the Berwyn political establishment.

Following is the statement of Emma Tai, Executive Director of United Working Families, on today's endorsement.

"United Working Families is proud to endorse the progressive Berwyn United slate and their people-powered challenge to a complacent political establishment.

"This is the first shot across the bow for Democrats in the Trump era. The 15-candidate Berwyn United slate—composed of rank-and-file union members, four LGBTQ candidates, and six Latinos in a rapidly diversifying municipality—has mounted a serious, volunteer-led challenge to the political establishment in Berwyn.

"At a time when elites in both parties are helping the rich get richer, Berwyn United's commitment to all workers' rights to a union, their belief in keeping private business interests out of politics, and their support for immigrant rights are a much-needed change in direction.

"United Working Families enthusiastically endorses Berwyn United for the February 28 primary. We look forward to working together to advance independent, progressive politics in 2017 and beyond."

United Working Families is an independent political organization by and for the 99%, established in 2014 by the Chicago Teachers Union, SEIU Healthcare, Action Now, and Grassroots Illinois Action.
