Local 21 Welcomes Oakland Representative/Organizer Sharon Jenkins!

Local 21 welcomes back Sharon Jenkins. She is re-joining us as the new Oakland Representative/ Organizer. Sharon has 17 years of labor experience, six of those years with us as a San Francisco Representative/ Organizer in 2009-2015.

Sharon left Local 21 briefly in 2015 to return to school and graduated with a degree in Social Justice and Advocacy Studies. She traveled to several different states, working with Director’s Guild as a Field Representative in New York and working on the Hillary campaign, before eventually returning to Local 21.

Sharon is excited to be back and kicking ass for the working class in Oakland. Since getting rehired, she has hit the ground running; Sharon helped coordinate the Local 21 Oakland strike vote on her first week back! Welcome back, Sharon; we’re lucky to have you!
