Join Us - Monday, April 30 through May 4, 2018

For decades AFGE members have flown to D.C. for a week to engage in legislative mobilization at the AFGE Legislative Conference. With the attacks we face every day, we also need to be engaged in legislative mobilization at the local level. The purpose of this week will be to engage in Legislative mobilization at home.

Use this Script:

My name is (first name, last name) and I am an AFGE member that works at (agency and location). I'm calling today because I want you to know that I am proud of government employees. Government employees are an important part of every community. I work hard to bring critical services to my neighbors and the citizens of your district. That's why I'm asking you, since you are a government employee also, to stand up for public employees and let us keep doing what we do best, serve all Americans. I hope you will keep all of this in mind as you and your boss consider any policies that impact federal employees or the services we provide to the American people.
