Fund Name: Helping Labor During COVID-19 Pandemic
Organized by: AFGE District 14 and Y.O.U.N.G. (Young Organizing Unionists for the Next Generation)
Benefits: Metro Washington Council’s Community Services Agency
About the fund: “I remember not so long ago, our union brothers and sisters stood by us with support when our jobs were shut down,” said District 14’s Eric Bunn, AFGE National Vice President. “Some of us were even required to work with no pay. AFGE District 14 just wanted to make sure that we join in solidarity to help our industry workers and front line soldiers during this time of emergency. After all, isn’t this what unionism is all about?”
