Women’s Empowerment Committee

“There is no force equal to a woman determined to rise.”
–W.E.B. Dubois

The mission of the Women’s Empowerment Committee is to be the change we want to see in our world.

We will achieve this by educating our members on the issues that affect women. We will empower one another to boldly step out to fight for the rights of our members and all Californians to have a good life, live in sustainable communities and enjoy the fruits of social, economic and environmental justice.

We will model leadership excellence and mentor the next generation of SEIU Women, to create a legacy of visionary leaders to move us into the future.


Local 1000 Stands Against Domestic Violence
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The physical and emotional scars of domestic violence can cast a long shadow. Too many individuals face the pain and fear of domestic violence, victims who often suffer in silence and without support.

The Local 1000 Women’s Committee stands with those who have endured the often-tragic consequences of domestic violence and works to help prevent future incidents.

It is in this spirit that Local 1000 recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month with its efforts to educate and provide solutions to victims.
