Western North Carolina Workers’ Center convened its 10th Annual Women’s Congress on November 15 that brought over 60 Latinx women workers together virtually from across WNC. Each year, WNC Workers’ Center holds its Women Congress as an opportunity for immigrant women workers to come together in a safe space to strengthen community, to heal, and to strategize around the unique issues that immigrant women workers face in their workplaces and community. While this year’s Women’s Congress was virtual and a lot different than the in-person two-day convenings in the past, it was just as significant and impactful. Congress participates were presented with a “Welcome Bag” several days before the Congress. This year’s Women Congress focused on violence Latinx women face in their home, community, and workplaces. Women opened the Congress by sharing self portraits reflecting how they felt.
