Rest in Power, Anne Feeney (1951-2021)

We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Anne Feeney, long-time labor activist and singer-songwriter, from COVID-19 on February 3, 2021.

In the words of our own Railroad Workers United's Ron Kaminkow, "Anne was a great foot soldier in the class struggle. She tirelessly and unapologetically used her voice, her guitar, and her songwriting skills to advance the cause of working people and the labor movement. With wit, humor and keen insight, her brash lyrics and delivery were invigorating and inspiring to workers in struggle. At rallies and demonstrations, on picket lines and at protests, on the streets as well as in bars, cafes, concert halls and union halls across the continent, she was a musical version of another great hellraiser, Mother Jones."

She was a magnificent singer, songwriter, and good troublemaker, and we will remember her with great fondness. Please take a moment to read her full obituary at LaborNotes.
