The National Human Rights Committee (HRC) is comprised of the National Vice President for Women and Fair Practices and the 24 elected District officers called the National Fair Practices Affirmative Action Coordinators (NFPAAC) and the National Women's Advisory Coordinators (NWAC). The purpose of the HRC is to implement programs around civil, human, women and workers’ rights and study and propose legal, legislative and/or administrative proposals relating to improving working conditions with a focus on eliminating employment discrimination in the federal and D.C. government.
These proposals may be presented to the National Executive Council (NEC) through the National Vice President for Women and Fair Practices. The topics of these proposals include but are not limited to eliminating discrimination based on race, color, age, sex, religion, national origin, disability, political affiliation, personal appearance, family responsibility, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression and/or pregnancy as they relate to the quality of life for AFGE members, their families and their communities. These proposals once adopted by the NEC may be implemented or lobbied for internally and externally to accomplish the goals of AFGE.
