Working Families Lobby Corps

Since the 2011 Legislative Session, the Working Families Lobby Corps has distinguished itself as an integral part of the Florida AFL-CIO Political/Legislative Program. Entering its 7th year, the WFLC will continue the important work of representing the voice of  working people in the state.

From the first committee week, through “sine die” marking the end of every Legislative Session, Working Families Lobby Corps activists represent Florida’s working people at the Capitol. Those same activists have been empowered to take the fight home, spreading the message of how “politics as usual” really works in Tallahassee, and galvanizing their Sisters and Brothers to join the fight in Tallahassee.

This year, the union members and citizen activists of the Working Families Lobby Corps will be in Tallahassee once again – everyday – to make sure ALL working people in the state are represented fairly and not used as pawns by the power brokers of this state.

We will continue to be there every day to speak out in favor of workers, and WILL be heard.

A schedule of Lobby Corps weeks is listed below.  Whether you can join us for a day, a week, or however long you can, make the commitment to join us!  If you are returning this year, you are among the everyday heroes who stand up for the rights of others. If you are joining us for the first time, prepare to be immersed in the day-to-day fight for labor unions and all the working people of this great state.
