Why Political Action
Working people need to have allies among elected officials, and need to work to elect these allies. They vote on issues of particular concern to AFSCME members, like privatization, and they vote on broader issues of concern to all working families...
What is PEOPLE?
Public Employees Organized to Promote Legislative Equality is the legislative and political arm of AFSCME. The PEOPLE program influences public policy and legislation by involving AFSCME members.
PEOPLE's Endorsement Process
Elected officials can dramatically affect the lives of AFSCME members. That's why the AFSCME PEOPLE program has established an endorsement process to give members the information they need to make the best choices on Election Day.
Get involved by participating in voter registration drives, lobbying on specific issues and bills, working on campaigns-from walking precincts to working phone banks-and making voluntary contributions.
