Path to Power

Path to Power is a project of the AFL-CIO Political Department to identify, recruit, and elect candidates to run for local government offices. The purpose is to shift the power in local government to favor stronger pro-worker policies and develop a bench of candidates to move into higher office.

The Michigan AFL-CIO will host a statewide, three-day candidate training program to prepare union members and progressive, pro-working family candidates to run in 2020. The training will include campaign messaging, labor issues, campaign planning, fundraising and voter contact.
