Educational Opportunities are a Union Value!
Apply now for the 2020 Leora Hill Scholarship
Our Local 1000 Purpose Statement provides us with a vision of a better life for all Californians. A foundational component of that vision is a solid education, which is essential to achieving social and economic justice.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 Leora Hill Scholarship, an opportunity our union offers to children of our members enrolled in middle school, high school or college.
The Leora Hill Scholarship was created by our African-American Committee in memory of a lifelong labor activist and Local 1000 member. Leora served Californians for 23 years, working at the Board of Equalization. She served as president of DLC 723 and as the chair of our Committee on Political Education (COPE) for southern California.
It is in honor of her union spirit and leadership that we offer a new generation of our members families support in attaining their educational goals.
All applications are due by June 19, 2020.
