Take Action

Stand together to shape the future of Florida

From exercising our voice at work to improve the lives of our coworkers to advocating on behalf of candidates and causes that impact us all.

AFSCME members across Florida are standing up and speaking out. We know we are stronger when we speak with a united voice so to make that as loud and as powerful as possible it takes all of us.

Big change comes from many small steps and one person can have a big impact. So be the change you want to see by taking part in AFSCME Florida actions and shape your future!

Connecting with AFSCME members who share the same job – and the same passion for it – has never been easier. With AFSCME Facebook groups, you can be a part of a conversation where dedicated professionals from across the country swap stories, celebrate victories and gear up for future battles.

By joining one (or more) of the AFSCME Facebook groups, you’ll be able to stay connected with other AFSCME members who know what it takes to get the job done and who never quit on their communities.

Senator Nelson has strongly opposed stripping away coverage for 32 million American, doubling the cost of premiums and wrecking our health care safety net. We thank him for his work and we know he will continue to be our voice in the Senate no matter what they bring up next.

AFSCME members like you have made over 15,000 calls to Congress, telling them to reject attempts to gut Medicaid and rip health care from millions. Now is our time to keep up the pressure. Join the thousands of public service workers who have made their voices heard and call your senator today.

President Donald Trump promised NOT to cut Medicaid, but his budget proposal and the House health care bill he supports show otherwise.

Reneging on a key campaign vow to American working families, Trump now wants to pave the way for cutting Medicaid to half its size over the next 10 years. At a time when working families and seniors need affordable health care more than ever, Trump is turning a deaf ear to them. 

Watch this message from AFSCME Pres. Lee Saunders and tell your senators in Congress to stand up for Medicaid and reject the House’s health care bill and the Medicaid cuts in Trump’s proposed budget for 2018.

Text the word “CUTS” to 237-263 to be connected to your senator’s office.

Next to the health of your family, the health of your finances is a close second. That’s why AFSCME is pleased to announce we’ve been selected as one of 30 organizations nationwide to partner with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to offer members a series of free, in-person financial education clinics through a program called Your Money, Your Goals.

The Your Money, Your Goals Toolkit helps AFSCME members avoid common mistakes by spotting them early and teaching you how to make sense of the often-confusing world of finance.
 
In order to make the financial education clinics as helpful as possible, please take three minutes and complete this survey. All responses will be kept confidential.
