HOPE AFSCME Local 123

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.

At a time when our country needs real investments in infrastructure, education and public services, congressional leaders 

No politician running for office today would openly advocate for more wealth inequality in our country, where the richest 1 percent of the population owns 40 percent of the wealth. Even candidate Donald Trump in 2016 promised to stand up for the “forgotten men and women of our country,” who feel betrayed by a rigged economic system that benefits a small minority at their expense. Yet every single day, President Trump and congressional leaders seem determined to do more to increase wealth inequality than to alleviate it; do more for corporations and the wealthy than for single parents working two or three jobs to make ends meet.

Like others around the world, I mourned the death last week of Aretha Franklin.

HOPE AFSCME Local 123 members served their city heroically during Huricane Harvey. Many of you worked night and day to protect the people of Houston while your own homes were flooded and damaged. HOPE is dedicated to helping members rebuild their lives and make sure that we stay HOUSTON STRONG together. Below are resources available to HOPE members.
