UFCW Local 1776KS Women's Network
The UFCW 1776KS Women's Network works to motivate and encourage women to become active in our Local Union so they can contribute toward building and strengthening the UFCW. More than half of the UFCW's 1.3 million members are women- and we are a powerful resource for our Union.
The active participation of women members in UFCW 1776KS enhances our strength at the bargaining table, in organizing campaigns, and in the political arena.
The Women's Network welcomes all UFCW sisters and brothers who want to help create a brighter, more secure future for working families. We invite you to join us.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Carla Dorsey at firstname.lastname@example.org OR Marcy Kelly at 610-940-1847 or email@example.com.

Love Over Addiction
The UFCW Women’s Network has partnered with Love Over Addiction, an online recovery community for women, to help UFCW members who love someone that suffers from addiction. During this health crisis, alcohol abuse is on the rise and has led to spikes in domestic violence and even suicide. We want to do everything we can to do help one another through this time.
The Love Over Addiction program provides access to videos, audio recordings, private self-help workshops and more so it’s convenient for the person seeking help. Regular access to this program costs $300, and with the Women’s Network sponsorship this benefit is offered to UFCW members for only $20. Text WOMENSNETWORK to (720) 903-1276 for more information.
We remind women in need that they are not alone and are encouraged to take advantage of this new valuable resource. You can learn more about this important program here.
