The National Fair Practices Affirmative Action Coordinators (NFPAAC) were established by Convention action in 1980. The NFPAAC is charged with mobilizing AFGE members around civil, human and workers’ rights issues in their District, and to work closely with National Women's Advisory Coordinators (NWAC) and the National Vice President for Women and Fair Practices to help raise the profile of civil and human rights and strengthen the workers’ rights agenda in their District. These Coordinators represent members on EEO issues, they monitor trends in EEO laws and regulations, and they may recommend a national action plan for AFGE. They also provide training on EEO issues throughout the District that they represent.
Each District National Fair Practices Affirmative Action Coordinator is elected for a 3 year term at their District Caucus. They are also referred to as District Coordinators.
