Clutching his one and a half year old daughter in his arms, Metro Washington Council Executive Director Carlos Jimenez joked about how she will be a future intern and expressed appreciation for the Goldstein intern’s work this summer building the labor intern network. Host UFCW’s Erin Regan gave a powerful and concise presentation on the Making Change Walmart Campaign, encouraging interns to get involved. United Students Against Sweatshops national coordinators were also in attendance, networking with interns to organize for worker justice when many of the interns return to school. After a round of introductions where attendees introduced themselves and talked about their work this summer, they returned to mingling and networking. If you are interested in helping design next summer's intern network program, please reach out to Amanda Pacheco at the IBEW or Marilyn Sneiderman at Rutgers.
