Committee On Political Education (COPE)
Typically in the past we only talked to workers about politics and legislation every two or four years when we were asking workers to vote for a particular candidate. In between elections, we haven't always kept workers up to date on current legislative issues effecting them nor have we explained how Congress effects their lives.
Rapid Response has changed all that. We do not focus so intensely on who is in office, we place our emphasis on how they vote on worker issues. Republican or democratic is not the issue. We use Rapid Response as a method of educating members on the issues, how they affect us and what they can do to help.
From time to time we will ask you to email, write or phone our representatives about the issues. Below are links to our legislators for Virginia and North Carolina.
