This year’s convention theme is Solidarity Rising.  Over the past two years, our union has proven that there is nothing we can’t accomplish when we rise up in solidarity with one another.  WFSE members pulled together to promote the values of public service, social justice, and dignity for all members – all while taking on a global pandemic and an economic recession.  Our convention will recognize the adversity we’ve faced and celebrate our shared victories.
