2005 Awards Celebration

American Rights at Work’s first annual Eleanor Roosevelt Human Rights Awards Celebration was a huge success, as evidenced by the rave reviews from attendees.

John Sweeney and David Bonior Over 400 guests representing political and social justice organizations, the labor movement, and student activism showed their support for our work at the March 31 event.

The inaugural ceremony honored employers that work cooperatively with their employees’ unions; activists who stand up and speak out on behalf of workers’ rights; and a legendary artist and activist who has led us, inspired us, and challenged us to keep beating the drum and spreading the message.

The standing-room only crowd of American Rights at Work supporters proved that young or old, famous or unknown, union member or not, the democratic right to form a union is something worth struggling to protect and advance.

Crowd of attendees We’ve only just begun our efforts to ensure that workers are not struggling for workplace democracy alone.  It will take all of us, and we’re excited and bolstered by your support in our first year.

We extend heartfelt thanks to everyone whose support, attendance, and hard work contributed to making the event a tremendous success.  We hope that this event will be the first of many victorious celebrations for workers’ rights we share together.
