Public Servants Save Lives

This week is Public Service Recognition Week. We’re urging the American people to say thank you to our everyday heroes who work day in and day out to save and make our lives better.  

Whether you are NIH medical researchers, EPA scientists, FEMA first responders, VA doctors and nurses, TSA officers, law enforcement officers, aircraft mechanics, food inspectors, weather forecasters, SSA claims processors, park rangers, benefits processors, transportation engineers, – and the list goes on, you deserve our thanks and appreciation for the great work you do creating safe and thriving communities across the country. You make America work and solve problems no one else can handle.  

Since 1985, the first week of May has been designated Public Service Recognition Week to recognize public servants' tremendous contributions to the country. AFGE salutes these heroes, and we are proud to help them serve the American people better. 

We want to know how you serve your community. Click here to download our "I Serve Because" sign, fill it out, and take a picture of yourself with the sign. Email it to us at comments@afge.org so we can share all the ways YOU serve!
