Our Regional Legislative CAP Coordinators work with local area CAP Councils to educate, organize and mobilize active and retired members in election campaigns and the legislative arena. The coordinators also organize rapid-response teams of volunteers who contact their representatives and senators on key votes. 

UAW CITIZENSHIP AND LEGISLATIVE (CAP) COMMITTEE

Purpose of the Committee

The Citizenship and Legislative Committee, most often referred to as the Community Action Program (CAP), is the worksite political-legislative arm of the local union and the vital workplace political activator.

If you believe that the people we elect greatly impact the political climate for working families and you want your voice heard, then this is the committee to join. CAP committee members work on identified key issues adopted by convention action.

This agenda includes:

  • Protecting worker rights
  • Fair trade
  • New initiatives for working families
  • Health and safety
  • Other issues that affect working families

These issues are given priority based on, among other things, urgency and geography. We support candidates who support and fight for working people. The CAP committee assists in voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives, dollar drives, letter writing campaigns, and publicizing the issues and positions of public officials. This is the committee for hands-on political experience that allows you to grow and learn and take part in the legislative process.
