2020 Census

The 2020 Census counts every person living in the United States and five U.S. territories—once, only once, and in the right place. This census is conducted every 10 years by the U.S. Census Bureau, a nonpartisan government agency.

#WeRise

SEIU Logo

The promise of America—that if you work hard you and your family can get ahead—is a broken promise for too many Americans.

There are too many poverty-wage jobs with no benefits and irregular hours, and not enough good, union jobs where you and your co-workers can negotiate higher pay and better healthcare coverage. We need more union jobs that provide financial security for families and build thriving communities.

Unfortunately, the Supreme Court is considering a case, Janus v. AFSCME, that would make things even worse, dividing working people and making it more difficult to join together in unions.

Watch and Share Now!

The good news is that the resistance to this attack on working people is alive and well. Click here to watch and share the video of workers rising up and fighting back at more than 600 actions across the nation.

Share the video and get involved in the fight for more good, union jobs.

In unity,

Mary Kay Henry

International President
