In 2016, you might not have noticed Francina Stevenson. “Back
then, I was always one of the people standing in the corner,
never raising my hand,” she says. Five years later, things have
taken a significant change, as Francina has become an active
member leader in Local 1000 as well as her community.
The transformation began when she signed up to be a job steward
and take part in Local 1000s Leadership Apprentice Program for
Stewards (LAPS). It was there that she learned to “advance
without fear” and to make a difference for her fellow members.
