A Voice on Capitol Hill

Our members and staff are working to make sure the voice of government employees are heard. In an era of big money and increased corporate influence on lawmaking, AFGE provides the crucial connection between members of Congress and those we represent. 

Every year members from around the country gather in Washington, D.C. at our Legislative & Grassroots Mobilization Conference to speak face-to-face members of Congress. Every day our staff and members in Congressional Districts across the country engage lawmakers on behalf of government employees so that our member's concerns are heard.

Power through Unity

The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) is the largest and most influential federal and D.C. employees union in the United States. We’re growing stronger every day. In the last four years, we’ve added a net increase of some 20,000 new members. Combined with 18,000 retired members, our total membership is more than 300,000 strong. No other union represents close to that number of government employees.

AFGE is in the middle of every battle involving the well-being of federal and D.C. employees and their families. We lobby the White House, work in agencies, litigate in court and lobby in the halls of Congress. AFGE is all about producing results that positively affect our members' lives.
