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.

Accepted applicants will receive the full support of Indiana's labor movement. This includes training support, leadership access and a targeted member-to-member campaign to ensure union households within your respective district are informed of your candidacy.

To be considered for the program you must complete the following steps:

1. Local Union Sign Off. Have your Local Union Officer complete this form and return it to the email attached.

2. Initiate Endorsement Process from Local Bodies. Reach out to local labor bodies within your area and begin their respective endorsement process. To assist with this task included are jurisdictional maps for AFL-CIO Area Labor Federations (ALFs) & Chapters, UAW CAP Councils and Building & Construction Trades Councils.

3. Fill out the Path to Power Application online or using this form. After completion of steps 1 & 2, submit your local sign off letter and list of any labor endorsements to date to rhenderson[at]inaflcio.org

If you have questions during this process please reach out to Rob Henderson at rhenderson[at]inaflcio.org with "Attn: P2P - Last Name" in the subject line.
