Why I Joined

“I joined CAPE because I will always choose to protect my interests and have a voice and a seat at the table when decisions are being made that directly affect me.”

“My mother returned to the workforce after being a stay at home mom for 10 years, she and other federal employees were represented by their union multiple times and I got to hear every struggle and triumph she experienced. I joined CAPE immediately after securing my first job after college because I wanted to be part of an organization that already had a system in place to promote dignity, competence and activism. Thanks for the inspiration mom.”
