We Make America Happen

AFSCME’s 1.6 million members provide the vital services that make America happen. We’re the ones who maintain our roads, care for the sick and elderly, make our schools good places to learn, keep our communities safe, and much more. In so many ways, in so many places, each and every member does the important work of our cities and towns, counties and states, schools, correctional, health and public facilities that our communities depend on.

With members in hundreds of different occupations – from nurses to corrections officers, child care providers to sanitation workers – AFSCME advocates for fairness in the workplace, excellence in public services, and prosperity and opportunity for all working families.
