Danny Perez



“Danny Perez was organizing director for the ILGWU in Connecticut. He made a lasting mark in the struggle for workers’ rights, especially in the area of health and safety. He gravitated toward the poorest workers in the most dangerous jobs and organized them for their own protection, whether it was the Uretek factory in New Haven, Mario Valente, Inc. in New Britain, or the Plastonics, Futuramik, or Hartford Faience plants in Hartford. He built coalitions between the labor, community and political worlds. He was fearless and has passed his love of justice to his children.

--Steve Thornton, V.P., Greater Hartford Central Labor Council
