The UFCW’s constituency groups are made up of dynamic local union leaders and members who work to push each other to be more involved in their union, to mentor young UFCW activists from these communities, and to be dogged, constructive advocates for representation at both the local and International levels of the union.
UFCW Women’s Network
The Women’s Network connects the UFCW’s activist women members with each other across the U.S. and Canada. Together they work to mentor, motivate, and educate UFCW women at the local union level in order to increase women’s participation in UFCW programs and activities, and build a group of women activists committed to growing the UFCW.

The United Latinos work to empower Latino men and women within the UFCW at the local union level, at the International, and within our communities all over the U.S. The group is a staunch advocate on issues most important to the Latino community, including immigration and encouraging Latino voter turnout for worker-friendly candidates in local, state, and national elections.
UFCW Minority Coalition
The mission of the UFCW Minority Coalition is to develop a unified voice and promote diversity and inclusion within the labor movement and with in the UFCW. The African American leaders and organizers who belong to the coalition are committed to growing the ranks of the UFCW while at the same time holding the union accountable for its commitment to diversity and inclusion as a fundamental key to growth. The group’s activists are on the front lines of current civil rights battles, like voter suppression efforts that threaten to disenfranchise thousands of voters at polls.
