Building Political Power BLOC By BLOC

By AFSCME Staff ·

Community organizing is vital to harnessing political power to create real change, especially in minority neighborhoods that have long been neglected. Groups like BLOC, Black Leaders Organizing for Communities, are mobilizing residents around issues that matter to them and giving them the tools to hold elected officials accountable. AFSCME President Lee Saunders visited Wisconsin recently to see how Milwaukee residents are exercising political power through BLOC’s year-round, face-to-face community organizing.
