AFSCME California has a goal to get 10% of its members to join the AFSCME PEOPLE program. Help Local 3993 increase our participation numbers by clicking here to join AFSCME PEOPLE. The suggested monthly contribution amount is $8.35.
PEOPLE — Public Employees Organized to Promote Legislative Equality—is the legislative and political arm of AFSCME. The PEOPLE program influences public policy and legislation by involving AFSCME members in four related activities:
Registering AFSCME members to vote and providing them with important information on the issues and candidates' records
Lobbying elected officials
Working to elect candidates who will act in the interest of AFSCME members and their families
Making voluntary contributions that fund these and other union political activities.
Through the political process, we can be involved in setting important public policy. Through the political process, public employees can elect representatives who are sensitive to maintaining vital public services and committed to dealing with workers fairly.
