AFSCME Council 31 Member Dies in the Line of Duty

Pamela Knight, AFSCME Local 448 member and dedicated DCFS child protection investigator, passed away Feb. 8 due to injuries suffered in the line of duty. She was viciously attacked last fall while protecting the welfare of a two-year-old child and was left largely unresponsive for months. Pam died surrounded by love from her family, friends and coworkers.

On April 28, Rockford United Labor will place Pam’s name on the Workers’ Memorial Wall during its annual Workers’ Memorial Day Ceremony.
