SEIU President Mary Kay Henry's leadership is deeply rooted in a belief that when working people of all backgrounds — regardless of gender, zip code, race or religion — join together, we can make the impossible possible. In this year of working people speaking ever so prominently, it is fitting that TIME100 has recognized the influence of working people in Mary Kay Henry. President Henry was named one of Time’s 100 most influential people in the world in 2020.
In her video recognition of the award, fittingly recorded on National Voter Registration Day, Mary Kay honors the fighting determination of SEIU and Fight for $15 leaders, plainly stating of the huge TIME100 honor: "This is a tribute to the courage of the 2 million working people united in SEIU and the Fight for $15." Please take a moment to watch.
