Join us at AFGE's 2018 Legislative Conference

AFGE invites you to join us at the 2018 Legislative and Grassroots Mobilization Conference on February 11-14, 2018.  Registration is now open. 
 
This conference is our chance to come to Washington, D.C. and tell Congress about the important work we do for the American public. Let's fight for our pay, benefits, and rights. Come make your voice heard on Capitol Hill!  

To register and for hotel information, visit www.afge.org/legcon2018. Here are the key details: 

  • Where: Hyatt Regency Capitol Hill
    400 New Jersey Avenue NW
    Washington, D.C. 20001. 
  • When: Sunday, Feb. 11 through Wednesday, Feb. 14. 
    Capitol Hill and D.C. Council visits will occur on Tuesday and Wednesday. 
  • Registration Deadline extended to Wednesday, January 31. Each attendees’ name should be written on the check.

Locals are encouraged to send their Legislative and Political Coordinator (LPC). The conference is an excellent opportunity for LPCs to build productive relationships with their lawmakers. We hope that you can also bring a young AFGE member and mentor to attend our AFGE YOUNG (Young Organizing Unionists for the Next Generation) workshop and social event on Sunday, Feb. 11, from 5 – 7 p.m. The Women's and Fair Practices Department and the AFGE Pride program will host other events and workshops throughout the week. 

You must schedule appointments with your Senators, Representatives, and Council Members in advance. Please fill out this online Congressional Visit Form for every meeting you schedule. This information will be important for the AFGE staff before, during, and after the Legislative Conference. 

This is a crucial moment for federal and D.C. government employees. We are fighting against attacks on our pay, retirement, benefits, and employee rights. We must educate our elected officials about the value of our work and the importance of our workplace rights. Together, we will build a stronger pro-worker bipartisan coalition in the 115th Congress.
