Service + Solidarity Spotlight: Georgia State AFL-CIO Hosts ‘Women and Friends’ Campaign Event

AFGE retiree Yolanda Pickstock calling union voters

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our regular Service + Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

The Georgia State AFL CIO’s Labor 2022 campaign hosted a women and friends labor event on Saturday at Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 613’s union hall. The event convened women labor leaders, union members, community partners and friends to write postcards to fellow union members about the importance of this election and reminding them to vote. Volunteers also phone banked and canvassed around Atlanta as part of the day’s campaign actions.
