DC: Dyana Forester, UFCW 400: A dedicated labor leader with UFCW 400, Dyana (above left) has continuously attended and participated in COPE activities in both DC and MD. She was a key leader in the fights to raise D.C.’s minimum wage to $15/hr and worked tirelessly to get the D.C. Council to pass a strong and pro-worker paid family leave policy at the end of 2015. Dyana is committed to mobilizing staff and workplace leaders to canvasses and engage in the political process, and has shown a strong commitment to hosting and supporting the development of our Prince George’s/Montgomery County COPE committee.
