AFSCME Virginia

AFSCME members are on the front lines, keeping our communities running.

AFSCME praised today’s ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that extends protections under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act to millions of LGBTQ workers.

Right now, front-line public service workers – health care workers, corrections officers, custodians, and other public service workers – are putting their lives at risk to fight this pandemic.
