“ATTENTION AFSCME Members 35 Years and Younger”

After a brief sabbatical, AFSCME Next Wave is trying to break back into the lives of AFSCME’s younger members here in Oregon!  We recently sent 12 members to the National Next Wave Conference in Atlanta, GA.  The group came back with expanded knowledge of the importance and roles of the union, ideas around inclusion and social justice efforts, and they are now equipped with media literacy and tools for building a stronger union movement locally.

Two of our sisters came back and decided to become stewards as a result of their experiences.  The entire group came back inspired and full of ideas, and now it’s time to bring more people in.   So please join us in extending an invitation to all of our younger members to start building relationships with their AFSCME brothers and sisters through Next Wave!

We will be holding Potluck Picnic & Movie nights in both the Portland and Salem areas in August (see attached flyer).  We will be reaching out to other regions as we find new recruits and work on building our statewide capacity.  Anybody interested in rebuilding or starting Next Wave in their area should contact Mary at 503.781.3181.
