Sara Nelson is the International President of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, AFL-CIO since 2014, representing 50,000 of aviation’s first responders at 17 airlines. She made headlines in 2020 in a historic fight to ensure aviation workers retained their paychecks, health care, and other benefits for 16 months during the COVID pandemic, while banning stock buybacks and dividends across the industry and capping executive compensation for two years after the relief period ends.
Named in honor of UW-Green Bay Emeritus Professor and award-winning scholar, The Harvey J. Kaye State of Democracy Speaker Series will consist of four featured speakers each year that span the subject matter and intellectual spirit of UW-Green Bay’s problem-focused mission. Commemorating the public engagement and broad intellectual spirit of Prof. Kaye’s career, future speakers will engage with some of the most urgent questions facing our democracy, including in the fields of workers’ rights, racial inequality, public health, technology, and journalism. This event is made possible by the Rob and Cathy Riordan Family Foundation.
