Join An AFSCME Caucus

Your engagement is key to being a powerful union. As part of Oregon AFSCME’s strategic plan, we are expanding opportunities for involvement with an increase in member caucuses. Our goal with these caucuses is to elevate member voices with an eye toward equity to better address the needs of all our members.

Council 75 Black Caucus
A group composed of people that identify as African-Americans/Black to promote the interests of black people, empower workers to organize for justice and take leadership in advancing the equity goals of our union. At our first meeting on November 19, 2020 6:00PM-7:30PM we will go over the specific goals of the caucus as a group. Click here to fill out the Black Caucus interest form.
