In case there were any doubts, this comes from the horse’s mouth:
Three Connecticut labor leaders, Art Perry [Connecticut political director of SEIU 32BJ Justice for Janitors], Anna Montalvo [vice-president of AFSCME Council 4] and Gwen Mills [political field director of Unite-Here unions for Connecticut and Rhode Island], will be honored on Sunday, Dec. 6, with the annual Amistad Award presented by the People’s World, on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the Communist Party USA. The reception, “Keep the Ball Rolling … to win jobs with union rights, health care, peace and equality!” will be held at 4 p.m. at the New Haven People’s Center, 37 Howe Street, New Haven.
The three are being recognized for their contributions in mobilizing in the workplace and community and building coalitions for social change. Also featured on the program will be music and spoken word, a holiday gift table and homemade buffet.
McCarthyism? Yeah, right.
