Get Comfy and Join Us On the Phones!

A messsage from Oregon AFSCME:

We know that our contracts, budgets, safety, and rights as workers depend heavily on the individuals elected to represent us in local and state offices. With the May Primary Election just weeks away, we have the opportunity to elect people who will listen to and advocate for the needs of workers like us.

That’s why we’re reaching out to you to join us for virtual phone banking to support our endorsed pro-labor candidates. These candidates have been carefully selected after a thorough survey and interview process conducted by Oregon AFSCME members like you, and they need our support.

Our phone banking shifts can be done from home, no need to leave your couch! We understand that engaging in political conversations, especially over the phone, can be intimidating. Watch this short video that explains the phone banking process and answers some common questions:

In these final weeks leading up to the May Primary Election, every conversation matters. We need to connect with as many of our fellow AFSCME members as possible to ensure that our endorsed candidates secure their place on the November ballot.

Everyone who shows up for a phone banking shift between now and May 21 will be entered into a raffle to win a GrubHub, AirBnb, or Target gift card — there will be multiple winners, so sign up today!

We hope to see you (virtually) on the phones! Your participation will make a real difference in shaping the future for workers in Oregon. 

In solidarity,

Lamar Wise
Political Director, Oregon AFSCME
