From the first committee week, through “sine die” marking the end of every Legislative Session, Working Families Lobby Corps activists represent Florida’s working people at the Capitol. Those same activists have been empowered to take the fight home, spreading the message of how “politics as usual” really works in Tallahassee, and galvanizing their Sisters and Brothers to join the fight. This year, the union members and citizen activists of the Working Families Lobby Corps will be in Tallahassee once again – every day – to make sure ALL working people in the state are represented fairly. We will continue to be there every day to speak out in favor of workers, and WILL be heard.
