Rose attended the meetings/events at Clinton Hall, then later became a member of the ULFTA/AUUC. She liked being around people and enjoyed participating in all the social and political activities at the Hall.

In her early years, Rose was active in the Ukrainian Organization, participating in the Youth Club, Ukrainian Language School, dancing, music, and drama programs the organization offered. After her marriage in 1942 her focus switched to political activities outside the Hall. She became involved in organizing and Auxiliary for the Waterfront Workers.
