2020 Election Program

At SEIU Local 1000, we often say ‘Politics Matter’ because they do. When we say politics, we aren’t just referring to a candidate or an election — we’re discussing everything from the water we drink and the roads we drive on to the communities we live in and the air we breathe. That’s why our 2020 Election Program is centered on our value. In this election, we will be challenging our co-workers, our families, our communities, and all of our political candidates to find ways to build a California for all of us.

We will be taking action to restore funding to our schools and communities, to ensure all of the candidates have a real plan to support working people and state workers, and to ensure our members have opportunities to take action on the issues that matter most to them. 


Join Us For A Special Evening With Author Steven Greenhouse

Walker.

Help us change the narrative and transform the nation. Bring a friend and join in the discussion. We look forward to seeing you.
