5 Weeks Until our London Delegation!

Exciting things have been happening behind the scenes at Tradeswomen Building Bridges this week! We recieved an order of TBB merch (to be debuted in London). Delegates are purchasing flights and housing. The details for our Best Practices Workshop are being finalized, and special guests are being added.

We wanted to take some time and recognize our USA support staff. They have been working hard for over a year in order to make this delegation happen for us. These ladies will continue to be on call while we are overseas and assist with whatever we need. Meet Allie and Veronica!

Allie Perez is a plumber from San Antonio Texas. She is the founder of Texas Women in Trades and the co-chair of the National Tradeswomen Task Force Communications Comittee. Allie is the most recent addition to the TBB team, and has been helping with marketing behind the scenes. Outside of TBB, she is the proud mother of a seven year old and partner of a feminist ally. She enjoys running, reading, singing, and acting.

“I’m a marketer. I can plumb, but my trade is marketing. I’m passionate about the movement to bring more women to the trades BUT also improve the conditions for tradeswomen so we can retain. I love using my marketing skills to promote the tradeswomen movement and messaging. Bringing our fight to the fore through media and marketing is my passion.”-Allie Perez

Veronica Godinez is a co-founder of Tradeswomen Building Bridges and served as a 2019 delegate. She is a journeywoman cement mason with 20+ years in the trades as a concrete finisher, instructor, safety coordinator, manager, and now Apprenticeship Director. She is a member of Local 400 and the Steel Edge Women of the OPCMIA. She has been helping us by working on the planning comittee and by fundraising for the organization.
