Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy and the fundamental right upon which all our civil liberties rest. Voting gives us a voice. It’s the great equalizer to money and power. Our seat at the table comes from making our voices heard on Election Day.
One way the Sacramento Central Labor Council advocates for Labor's issues is by participating in electoral politics. Union members and their families mobilize to elect public officials, and support initiatives that further our working families' agenda. The Labor Council's 171,000 unions members represent a significant block of voters throughout our six county region. Through political organizing, campaign strategy and the ability to “Get-Out-The-Vote”, the Council is able to elect, and hold elected officials, accountable to workers needs.
