Labor rights are civil rights. From Dr. King’s march with striking sanitation workers in 1968 to AFSCME’s involvement in today’s civil rights movement, AFSCME is committed to policies that promote social justice, making it easier – not harder – to vote. AFSCME supports restoring the full power of the Voting Rights Act. AFSCME works to end the poisonous influence of billionaires and corporate special interests in our political system and restrict corporate money in our elections.
