You'll find them walking blocks in neighborhoods across the nation, talking to union members about the political change necessary to help working families. They are making phone calls, knocking on doors and passing out educational literature.
These 115 USW members in 20 states are working successful outreach programs, such as a phone drive made to 2 million active and retired members, a polling program which has identified more than 9,000 members, a door-knocking campaign with approximately 3,000 registered volunteers, and a distribution of over 750,000 leaflets.
These members dedicate their time to work for change, including in support of U.S. Senate races in Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina.
The members, who have contributed over 6,000 shifts, are true warriors in a stand for the working class. Throughout the campaign, we'll feature some of their stories on usw.org. For more information on how you can get involved, visit the USW Activist Corps' Web site or join the facebook group.
