We are HOPE AFSCME Local 123

As HOPE AFSCME Local 123  members, we have the power to make a difference. By joining together, HOPE members have clout at the ballot box, in the halls of government and at the bargaining table. HOPE AFSCME Local 123 is one of the city’s most powerful advocates for working families in the city of Houston.

Mandy Roberts-Amo is a teacher’s assistant at an elementary school in upstate New York, where she helps a legally blind child get through his day. His name is Jonathan. To Mandy, helping Jonathan learn and improve is more than a job, it’s a calling. And that’s in part because to her Jonathan is more than a student.

On Sept. 11, 2001, we as a nation faced a tragedy unique in our history.

On Monday, January 21st, 2018, the Black Heritage Society, in conjunction with the City of Houston, is once again sponsoring the 41st Annual MLK Jr Parade.

HOPE Members will march together in solidarity with other leaders, organizations, and the people of Houston to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

All HOPE Members and family are welcome to represent their Union in the Parade.

Participants are asked to meet at the staging area on Smith St and Lamar St by 9:30 AM and to wear Blue HOPE shirts.

HOPE Members and families have parking available at the Houston Permitting Center located at 1002 Washington Ave, Houston, TX 77002.
