The NAACP Riverside Branch 1059 honored SEIU 721 Vice President Linda Dent, with its Foot Soldier award at the civil rights organization’s Second Annual Labor Awards Dinner and Dance. The event took place on Saturday, Dec. 13, at the Radisson Hotel in Ontario.
The award is given to honor extraordinary performance by those unsung labor members who have sacrificed and struggled to make equality a reality for all; by going above and beyond the call of duty in the area of labor relations.
I am honored and humbled to receive this award. I have always been an advocate for worker’s rights and for the advancement of social justice in our communities. – Linda Dent, SEIU 721 Vice President
The awards dinner and dance was established to highlight and celebrate the contributions of labor unions in the fight for social justice in the Inland region.
