Government Affairs Activist Training
February 26, 2020
On February 20-22, 2020, our United MEC Government Affairs Committee representatives joined Government Affairs activists from all AFA Carriers in Chicago for the 2020 Political Activist Training. The training focused primarily on membership organizing and fundamentals to provide tools and effectively conduct GOTV and Voter Registration Drives. FlightPAC was discussed in detail as well as AFA—CWA’s 2020 Legislative priorities.
Guest speaker at the training was Mr. Don Villar, Secretary/Treasurer of the Chicago Federation of Labor. Activists were also able to volunteer to visit Congressman Dan Lipinski’s [IL03] office and participate in phone banking in support of the Congressman’s upcoming election.
Your Government Affairs Committee is excited and eager to apply what was learned and conduct successful member-to-member conversations regarding the extremely important 2020 elections.
We extend our appreciation to all the Government Affairs activists for their time and commitment in supporting our collective efforts by attending this training event.
