      The Teamsters Women's Conference has provided timely, topic-specific webinars that they hope are helpful to you. While they do not take the place of the yearly in-person conference, it is an opportunity to hear from Teamster Sisters as well as experts in fields that affect us.
      Due to the Pandemic, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer will not be hosting their annual walk at Soldier Field this year. However, the Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women's Committee will be walking together on Saturday, October 17th at 10:00 a.m. at Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve in Darian Illinois in support of the fight against Breast cancer.
      Making Strides is going Virtual!! In place of a walk at Soldier Field this year, ACS Making Strides Against Breast Cancer has created a variety of ways to have fun this October while supporting the fight against breast cancer. Teamsters Women’s Committee will be participating in several ways: 1.

      October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and once again the Teamsters Joint Council 25 Women's Committee has teamed up with the American Cancer Society's "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer' to help find a cure.  

      Other than skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women.  

      Each year in the United States, more than 250,000 women get breast cancer and 42,000 women die from the disease.  

      2020 has been a powerful reminder that we are all in this together. With your support, we can show every woman that has been inflicted with this disease that her life is important. By working together, we can inspire hope and become a force for good to get her access to the care she needs. 

      To join our team please go to ;

      Teamsters Joint Council No. 25 Women’s Committee donated over 16,000 personal hygiene products to the Chicago Period Project at the First Quarter Membership Meeting on Saturday February 15th. Women’s Committee members rotated in groups of ten to help sort out the of thousands of donations.

      The Chicago Period Project is a non-profit organization that seeks to empower homeless and in-need people to experience their periods with dignity, by providing free menstrual supplies to organizations like shelters, community centers and Chicago Public Schools.

      The non-profit organization was brought to the attention of the Women’s Committee’s Executive Board by Local 727 Executive Board member Caleen Carter-Patton. “It’s really great to help people who don’t have access to these supplies and even if they do it’s really expensive so being able to give to other women who need it is so important,” said Carter-Patton.

      Several affiliates helped to make the donation drive a huge success; Joint Council No. 25, Local 743, TNBC, Local 710, Local 727 and Teamster shops that held individual donation drives.  Joint Council 25 Women’s Committee President Reed-Bowers expressed her gratitude to Local 743 President Simmons-Peterson for hosting the event.  “This was the first membership meeting that I resided over as president of the Women’s Committee and I was so proud to have it at my home local.” Reed said. “It was the perfect location and I would like to extend my gratitude to President Simmons for her hospitality. I would also like to thank the Women’s Committee Executive Board for their efforts with pulling this event together. Working with such a great group of women makes my job so much easier,” President Reed said.

      The Second Quarter Meeting is scheduled for May 6, 2020, 6p.m. at Local 710 in Mokena, IL.

      Last year, JC25 Women’s Committee in partnership with Teamsters Local 743 raised over $13,000 dollars for the American Cancer Society’s 2018 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walks. 

      This year the Women's Committee and Local 743 will again join forces and has committed to be the popular Pink Chair Sponsor at the Soldier Field Walk which will be held Saturday October 19, 2019.

      The American Cancer Society's, Making Strides Walks event is a noncompetitive 3 to 5-mile walk that brings people together to make a difference for everyone who has been touched by breast cancer. The events raise money to fund innovative research, provide free information and support, and to help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it's most treatable.

      We're excited to build on last year's success of raising over $13,000 to fund breast cancer research. 'The dedication and commitment of our walkers knows no limits. We certain that we can successfully meet this year's goal, building on the momentum from last year’s walk.
