Just got this off DailyKos:
I just learned that tonight at the Democratic Convention a former Pillowtex worker from North Carolina and leader of the Southern Region of UNITE HERE, Gloria Craven, will address the Democratic convention to speak on the issue of workers who suffer the loss of medical coverage when the plant they work at closes.
Gloria will take the stage tonight at approximately 8:00 p.m. local time, just a few speakers before Hillary Clinton. With Gloria and Anna Burger of Change to Win speaking tonight it is clear that the Obama campaign truly understands that the way to Renew America's Promise (their theme of the day, is by supporting unions and working people.
Highly recommend you head over and read the rest from Elana Levin of UNITE HERE.
