Charity Support

At our core, we are dedicated to supporting individuals, and one of the ways we accomplish this is through financial donations to our members’ chosen charities.

Our Charity Rep

Lucy Whitehall, our Charity Rep for the Criminal Justice Workers Union, welcomes nominations from CJWU members for charities that hold personal significance to them. These nominations serve as an opportunity to showcase the charitable work and encourage support and donations.

During our Annual Congress, we will invite our membership to vote for one charity to be designated as CJWU’s nominated charity for the upcoming year. This designation will entail a financial contribution from our membership funds.
