AFSCME Women Fired Up and Ready to Go

by Carol Anderson | June 19, 2012

LOS ANGELES — As 56 percent of AFSCME’s membership, the women of AFSCME are a powerful political force who can make the difference in elections in their cities and states, and return Pres. Barack Obama to the White House in November.

During AFSCME’s 40th International Convention, the National Women’s Advisory Committee is challenging AFSCME women to host a house party, a union party, or a coffee get-together to activate women from now until the November election. At these events, we can encourage women to participate in the 2012 election by conducting voter registration drives, educating voters about the issues, and participating in phone banks, labor walks, member-to-member campaigns, and GOTV.

Delegates can stop by the National Women’s Advisory Committee booth, located on the first floor of the LACC, to sign up for an AFSCME Women for Obama house party packet. Women have the power to ensure we elect candidates who support working families.
