On the final day of the AFSCME 44th International Convention, thousands of AFSCME activists pledged to double down on a culture of organizing and political action that has seen public service workers and the union overcome some of the most challenging hurdles in the history of the union and the country.

AFSCME officially launched virtual field offices in Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. In addition to these states, AFSCME is providing its members with access to virtual field offices in every state across the country.

These virtual field offices will serve as the main action hub for AFSCME’s 2020 political education, mobilization and GOTV operation to elect Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and pro-worker candidates up and down the ballot.

To capitalize on that momentum and unprecedented levels of activism to win for working people in 2020, AFSCME delegates to the convention received virtual training on how to use the new campaign field offices. Among the tools available to activists to contact voters are voter registration tools, mobile texting and virtual phone banking platforms, as well as instructions on how to vote by mail and how to serve as poll workers.

“We will put boots on the ground if it is safe to do so, but we are prepared for this moment and are already deploying innovative digital resources to mobilize public service workers to win for working people and elect Joe Biden in November,” AFSCME President Lee Saunders said.
