This year, for Women’s History Month, we’re taking a look at a group of leaders who are currently active making women’s history across the labor movement. Check back daily for a new profile and meet some of the people working to improve not only their community, but also to improve conditions for working people across the country. Today’s profile is Sandy Thompson-Wallace of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT).

Sandy Thompson-Wallace is president of TOTEM in Anchorage, Alaska. She also serves as president of the Alaska Public Employees Association/AFT. Thompson-Wallace worked in the largest school district in Alaska as a paraprofessional for many years, recently receiving her 25-year service pin. She successfully negotiated pay raises for her members after tough negotiations with the local school district.
