There are a number of important local races in the 2023 election cycle, and PROTEC17 members are encouraged to get involved via our Political Action Committee (PAC)! You can sit on an endorsement committee to interview worker-friendly and union-friendly candidates, help get out the vote for a candidate that we’ve endorsed, or simply donate to our PAC fund. As a reminder, NO DUES are ever used to fund political candidates – only voluntary donations to the PAC are used for this purpose.
