When Union Members Run,

Working Families Win

Investing In Our Own

The Indiana Path to Power Program (P2P) is a project of the Indiana State AFL-CIO, our affiliates, local labor bodies and close partners 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.

Our Vision for a Path to Power

Brothers and Sisters,

Elected officials in Indiana, whether it be at the local, state, or federal level, have significantly weakened working peoples' chances to live the American dream. Over the years, Hoosier workers have faced attacks such as collective bargaining rights being stripped from state employees, the passage of right to work, and the banning of project labor agreements. 

That's why the Indiana State AFL-CIO, our affiliates, and our partners have banded together and developed a program to recruit, train, and support our own to run for public office. 

Together, we can be successful in restoring fairness to working families in our state. Please see our Path to Power candidates below and if you are a union member that wants to run for office, read more about our program here. 

In solidarity,

Brett Voorhies, Indiana State AFL-CIO President

Our 2022 Primary Path to Power Candidates

No one can represent working families and their unions better than working people themselves. That’s why the Indiana State AFL-CIO sponsors an ongoing program to recruit, train, mentor, and support union sisters and brothers running for elected office.
