2019 Hershel Walker Peace and Justice Awards

Missouri Women in Trades (MoWIT), an organization dedicated to expanding opportunities for women to enter and succeed in the construction and building trades, has been honored with a 2019 Hershel Walker Peace & Justice Award.

The award ceremony, sponsored by the St. Louis Workers' Education Society (WES), honors local Labor and community leaders for their work in creating a more just and equitable society. Walker was a St. Louis trade unionist and human and civil rights leader committed to the struggle for peace and justice.

About 35 people attended the May 25 event, which was held at WES headquarters, 2929 S. Jefferson Ave., in St. Louis. After the ceremony, guests were treated to a preview of the new St. Louis Mother Jones exhibit at WES headquarters.

Historian Rosemary Feurer, author of "Radical Unionism in the Mid-West, 1900-1950," will be our keynote. She will speak on labor's need to reclaim its radical heritage, the fight for ongoing worker education - particularly labor history - and the importance of making bold demands that set a broader working class agenda.

Feurer is also the director of the Mother Jones Heritage Project.
