Just as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood up for economic and racial justice, so do AFSCME members today. With strength and solidarity, we honor his legacy through action.
Let’s stand together to reaffirm our commitment to justice. We will Never Quit.
Thank you for honoring our union history
This month, tens of thousands of workers and their allies joined together in Memphis, Tennessee, for I AM 2018, a nationwide campaign to advance social and economic justice by drawing on the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the 1968 Memphis Sanitation Workers’ Strike.
Please join us. Even if you couldn’t travel to Memphis, you can take part in this historic moment.
Such a short but powerful statement says that you're not going to let powerful interests rob working families of their freedom to join strong unions. Your recording will be a part of a chorus of workers who know that the fight for freedom has only just begun.
Sisters and brothers: We need to speak up together to secure our future.
Our AFSCME sisters and brothers in Texas, Puerto Rico, Florida, and other areas affected by recent hurricanes are on the front lines of the disasters. They are doing what they do best: Serving their community. Helping people. But they need our help.

Floridians, including at least 17,000 working and retiree members of AFSCME Florida throughout the state, are now in harm’s way from Irma. The entire state, not just south Florida, is expected to feel the effects of the storm to varying degrees.
Irma is forecast to make landfall Sunday. AFSCME wants all members to know that if you cannot leave your homes for safer ground, please consider the resources available to you, listed here.
Many AFSCME members are first responders and other public service employees whose work will be critical in the hours and days ahead. We say thanks for all that you do to keep your communities safe. Please keep yourselves safe, too.
