The Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) is holding a women’s leadership skills conference that begins April 30 in Silver Spring, MD, near Washington. The conference is open to all women.

The event, called “SNAP: Sisters Not Afraid of Power Conference” will be held April 30 to May 2 at the Tommy Douglas Conference Center at 10000 New Hampshire Ave. in Silver Spring, MD.
