About this title:

Synopsis: A Giant for Justice tells the amazing true story of legendary educator and retired president of the Washington Teachers’ Union, William H. “Bill” Simons. He accomplished dozens of great strides for teachers’ rights and made a long and lasting impact on scores of educators, students, and parents during his twenty-five years of service. Compassionately told by one of the teachers who worked with him, this compelling biography showcases Bill’s vision, efforts, and achievements, including strikes and walkouts to Congress, in which the author, herself, participated. The biography features reprints of official correspondence from Bills’ desk, dozens of stunning photographs spanning Bill’s life, and other archival documents. Also included at the end of the book are two chapters dedicated to tributes written to Bill by some of the many friends, family, former students, and colleagues whose lives he impacted. Not just a heartwarming account celebrating the life and accomplishments of a great man, A Giant for Justice serves as a prototype for other unions to expand and enhance their successes. Generations of union leaders to come can turn to this book for a concise statement of Bill’s work and use it to guide them in their own pursuit of justice.
