Join an AFL-CIO Constituency Group

Power in numbers means collective strength, whether we’re negotiating together for a fair return on our work or doing what it takes to service the communities we live in. The same can be said for the AFL-CIO’s constituency groups, which address challenges that workers from underrepresented groups face.
