Take Action

Join us for United Campus Workers of Georgia's first annual grassroots member Lobby Day! We'll be traveling from across the state to educate our legislators at the Capitol about what it's really like to work in public higher education and why we're fighting for fair pay raises for all USG employees. 

On Feb. 19 UCWGA is heading to the state capitol for our first ever Lobby Day! Personal stories are exactly the kind of thing that can make an impact on our elected representatives.

Low wages keeping you down? Health insurance coverage too expensive or inadequate? Do you work a second job just to make ends meet? Are you receiving government subsidies to help keep food on the table, heat/cool your home, etc? 

We invite you - or people you know - to tell us your stories in written or video-recorded form. Take a short selfie vid or write it down and email it to [email protected] by Friday, Feb. 15.
