The AFGE Council of Prison Locals has been raising funds to build the Jose Rivera Memorial Park in California. At the convention, the council asked AFGE locals and councils to make a contribution.
Seven years ago, Correctional Officer Jose Rivera was brutally murdered while on the job. He was a 22-year-old Navy veteran who had been employed by the Bureau of Prisons for less than a year. He was a war hero who dedicated his life to public service.
