April Freeman Lands Major Endorsements from Florida AFL-CIO & UAW 

“Fights For Working Families” 

North Fort Myers, FL: The 900,000 members of the Florida AFL-CIO and the 400,000 members of the UAW voted to endorse April Freeman for Congress and stand shoulder to shoulder with April in her fight to give working families a voice in Washington. 

These endorsements continue April’s track record as a fighter for working families. April has long stood for labor and against special interests. Through April’s grassroots campaign, she seeks to empower working families throughout the New District 17.

"I am honored and humbled by both the Florida AFL-CIO’s and UAW’s endorsements,” said April Freeman. “It is a game changer—a major step forward in restoring a voice for the working families in District 17 and bringing reform to Washington. I deeply and sincerely appreciate the support of Florida and this country's hard working union members.”

The Florida AFL-CIO works to provide better lives for all workers, members or not, through political and legislative action, grassroots mobilization and education. They also provide a wide range of community services working to build stronger and healthier communities.

The United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America is one of the largest and most diverse unions in the country, with members in virtually every sector of the economy. They are fighting for better schools for kids, secure health care and pensions for retirees, clean air and water, tougher workplace health and safety standards, stronger worker’s compensation and unemployment insurance laws and fairer taxes.

April Freeman is a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Florida’s 17th Congressional District, where she will be a New Voice For a New District.
