Du Pont's labor activities included the Kentucky Federation of Teacher's, Workers Education Council, Louisville Labor League for Political Education, Kentucky Federation of Labor, the NAACP, Kentucky Conference of Community Leaders, and her column in the Louisville Times entitled "With Labor's Ranks." Her column ran from 1938 to 1951 and covered labor news and issues in Kentucky, and national labor issues which affected Kentucky.
