AFSCME Strong 2023 - Organizing Member to Member

AFSCME Strong makes organizing job one. In the next year, 5 percent of AFSCME members will receive in-depth training on how to reach and connect with coworkers. These AFSCME Strong member activists will be the engine that drives our effort to engage 80 percent of our members, one conversation at a time. Local 88 will not be knocking on people’s doors this year and so it is extra important to step up. There are 2 ways to get involved.  Please sign up for a partial day or all the days – you choose: 

  1. February 4 & 5, 2023 Help with Phone Banking during AFSCME Strong Volunteer Member Outreach weekend. Sign Up
  2. February 13-17, 2023 AFSCME Strong Week 2023 Membership Blitz. Join together for new member outreach by visiting worksites and talking about the importance of solidarity. Sign up

Please reach out to Jordan Muehe (AFSCME) at if you have questions
