AFSCME PEOPLE

Fighting for Candidates Who Will Fight for Us

For public employees, the people we elect determine the quality of our lives and our livelihood. Our wages, benefits, working conditions, health and safety, and even whether we have jobs at all, are in the hands of officials who influence our future. Unless, that is, we hold them accountable. Our activism in politics is incredibly important.

Through PEOPLE we help elect candidates who stand for what matters to AFSCME members:

  • Strong contracts
  • No contracting out
  • Affordable health care
  • Retirement security
  • No cuts to vital public services

AFSCME PEOPLE enables our union to be strong politically and help enact legislative programs that protect our jobs.

Get Involved

Through the Political Action Through HOPE Committee – PATH Committee,  we have engaged thousands of HOPE-AFSCME members to help get out the vote for candidates who support working families and public services. We make phone calls, knock on doors, and do whatever it takes to turn out more voters. Be a part of history and join us.

Attend a PATH Committee meeting to learn how you can participate.  Contact the HOPE office for additional information at: 832-962-4506.
