What is PEOPLE?

PEOPLE is our voluntary political action fund that members can contribute to with just $2, $4 or any amount you choose per paycheck to help elect pro-worker candidates to office at the local, state and national level. PEOPLE stands for “Public Employees Organized to Promote Legislative Equality” and no, we didn’t come up with the acronym.

As public employees, our budgets and our work often become political battlegrounds, especially at the State Capitol. Donating to PEOPLE is how we make sure our values as working people are reflected in St. Paul and Washington DC, not fatcat corporate interests.

For as little as $2 per week, become a PEOPLE MVP to earn your fabulous PEOPLE MVP jacket and become eligible for AFSCME PEOPLE MVP Rewards, an online catalog of union-made, American-made apparel, houseware and other rewards exclusively for PEOPLE MVPs.
