Rhiannon Duryea, US Labor Campaign for Single Payer
Rhiannon Duryea is the new National Coordinator of the Labor Campaign for Single Payer. Rhiannon has dedicated her career to advancing the rights of workers and building a broader, bolder, and more inclusive labor movement.
Rhiannon has over a decade of experience in organizing and campaign development. Formerly the youngest ever Political Director of the Denver Area Labor Federation, she led efforts to expand access to collective bargaining for public workers, minimum wage increases for 510,000 Colorado workers, and dramatically increased member participation in legislative and electoral programs. She has served as first vice president for CWA-DNG 37074, on the board of Emerge Colorado, as the co-chair of the Colorado Working Families Party, and is a national trainer for Jobs with Justice and the AFL-CIO. Her chief areas of expertise are in member engagement, mobilization, and policy advocacy.
Rhiannon could not have joined at a more crucial time. A new Congress is in town and the Medicare for All Act was introduced in the House on March 17. We are working to recruit cosponsors and sign up union endorsers.
