Working Families Lobby Corps

The affiliates of Florida AFL-CIO unanimously passed a resolution at the 2012 Biennial Convention to adopt the Working Families Lobby Corps program as a permanent part of the Political/Legislative Program.

Since its formation, the Working Families Lobby Corps has represented Florida’s working middle class at the Capitol every day since the beginning of the 2011 Legislative Session.

Activists around the state have been empowered to take the fight home, spread the message of how “politics as usual” really works in Tallahassee and galvanizing their Sisters and Brothers to join the fray.

This year  activists of the Working Families Lobby Corps will be in Tallahassee – everyday – to make sure ALL working people in the state have a fair chance and are no longer trodden under the feet of the powerful Lobby firms who control the purse strings of the Senate President and House Speaker.

We will be there every day to expose their tactics and speak out in favor of workers. We will be the voice of Florida.

Below you will find a schedule of weeks in which you can participate in the Working Families Lobby Corps. 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 fight for the rights of others. If you are joining us for the first time, prepare to be immersed in the day to day combat for labor unions and the working people they represent.
