Celebrating Unions and Nellie Stone Johnson

Topics: Happenings


Many of you likely already know that Nellie Stone Johnson was instrumental in forming labor unions in Minnesota.  She is a person of so many firsts.  And now, on Monday, her legacy will continue as a statue of her will be unveiled at the Capitol. Her statue will make history. It will be the first memorial in the Capitol honoring a woman; the first honoring an African-American; and the first honoring a labor union leader.
