Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act: The purposes of the PRO Act are to ensure workers can push for the changes we want to see at our jobs without fear of retaliation and to strengthen workers’ right to form a union and negotiate for those changes if we so choose.
Here is how you can help!
- Endorse the PRO Act by adding your name here.
- Tell your senators to vote YES on the PRO Act:
- Use our Social Media kit, which also features AFL-CIO social media materials, to post on your social media accounts about the PRO Act.
- Last, ask your colleagues, family, and friends to take these five easy steps as well, including this one to keep sharing the message and strengthen our call for action now.

WEEKLY MOTIVATION: “You may not always have a comfortable life. And you will not always be able to solve all the world’s problems all at once. But don’t ever underestimate the impact you can have, because history has shown us that courage can be contagious, and hope can take on a life of its own.” — Michelle Obama
