Work to Strengthen Every Local

AFGE members from all walks of life are committed to growing our union, strengthening our democracy and improving the lives of working people. Organizing isn't a job -- it's a way of life. Thousands of AFGE members reached out to their coworkers, friends and family about the dignity and empowerment that comes with union membership. We rallied, took part in community celebrations, and cultivated the next generation of union leaders. Although we hit our immediate goal of 300,000 members, AFGE activists are just getting started on our road to 500,000 strong.
