MoveOn is working to bring ordinary people back into politics. Today’s system revolves around big money and big media, leaving most citizens left out. When it becomes clear our elected “representatives” do not represent the public, the foundations of democracy are in peril. MoveOn is a catalyst for a new kind of grassroots involvement, supporting busy but concerned citizens in finding their political voice. Our nationwide network of more than 1.7 million online activists is one of the most effective and responsive outlets for democratic participation available today.
The Union Label and Service Trades Department, AFL-CIO, was founded in 1909 to promote the products and services produced in America by union members — especially those products and services identified by a union label, shop card, store card and service button.
