AFSCME believes that every person working to sustain his or her community deserves respect.
America’s communities never rest. Streets need cleaning. Families need care. Students deserve well-run schools, and our neighborhoods demand safety.
Public service isn't just a job. It's a calling. It's hard work, and it's largely unsung.
But it means everything to know we're making our communities better. That’s why I’m committed to public service, and why I’ll never quit.
Meet the AFSCME members who make their communities thrive. Like Tyler Moroles, a program analyst at the Minneapolis Housing Authority. Moroles helps families receive housing vouchers for rental assistance. “My work reaches 16,000 people and 5,500 families,” he says. “These are families that could be you…If you lost your job, you’re just a couple of paychecks away from being that family.”
Meet Macgandra Ray, a child welfare specialist from St. Louis, Missouri. “The work is really dear to my heart, because when you have children in the juvenile system, people tend to forget about them.” That’s why she’s an advocate for them, ensuring the children receive the resources they need to heal and succeed.
