Hennepin County’s Education, Engagement, and Outreach Committee draws from the six Locals of Hennepin County AFSCME. Our work is driven by the shared understanding that together we must educate, organize, and unite the workplace. We host trainings, actions, and a variety of low-key fun opportunities to connect with other Union members.
Education: Through educating ourselves and taking action, we will achieve the wages, benefits, and conditions we all deserve. It is up to us to educate ourselves on the rich labor history that came before us and how we can learn from labor’s past.
Engagement: As workers, community members, and AFSCME members, we value civic engagement. We meet with our County Commissioners to raise concerns and let them know what it’s like for our members work-ing on the frontline.
Outreach: All of our lives are busy, but we try to organize evenings for socializing.
We invite all Hennepin County workers to join us and share their unique talents to help us achieve our goals.
Monthly meetings are the second Monday of each month, 5:30-7PM, on the second floor of the Seward Probation Office, 2600 26th St. E, Minneapolis. Hope to see you there!
