From the first committee weeks, through Sine Die, the end of every Legislative Session, Working Families Lobby Corps activists stand up for Florida’s working people. In order to ensure the safety of the working people involved in the Working Families Lobby Corps, this year, the program will be held virtually. The Florida AFL-CIO office and building will remain closed until further notice. All activities will be virtual.
While the fight for Florida’s workers may look a little different this year, we will continue to make our voices heard. This year our army of digital activists will continue to meet with their representatives, learn the ins and outs of “politics as usual” in Tallahassee, and be a part of Florida’s democratic process, all while remaining safe and socially distanced.
Members of this year’s Working Families Lobby Corps will be a part of:
• Regular remote briefings on legislation and session.
• Virtual meetings between participants and legislators.
• Committee viewing and, if possible, virtual testimony.
• Virtual phone banks to alert members of critical issues and legislative processes.
• Letter writing campaigns.
• Safe, in-district activities such as car caravans and virtual delegation meetings.
Join us as we strive for a democracy that’s “for the people, by the people.” The Working Families Lobby Corp has long been the premier civic program for Florida’s working people. Join us as we continue our mission online. Contact your local Field Representative below to sign up and get involved!
