When opportunity is equal, everyone wins. That’s why AFGE is devoted to promoting diversity, inclusion and fair treatment for all government employees through its Women’s and Fair Practices Department.
The department works to develop trainings to help educate union members on equal pay, paid parental leave, and bullying. They also work to engage young and LGBT workers in the federal and D.C. governments through its Y.O.U.N.G. workers program and AFGE Pride Program.
To ensure that all these workers and more have the voice to stand up and fight for fair treatment, the Women’s and Fair Practices Department is also in charge of the Voter Protection Program, a campaign to ensure that all eligible voters are able to make their voice heard at the polls.
