CWA Political Action Fund

(formerly COPE)

CWA Political Action Fund (formerly CWA-COPE) is the political action committee for the working men and women of CWA, their families and retirees.

CWA Political Action Fund informs and mobilizes union families to encourage their participation in the political process. Through their political action committee, CWA men and women express their voice in politics and policy issues that affect their lives.

It is your chance to have your voice - and the issues you care about - heard at the local, state and national levels of government. Voluntary contributions to the fund go toward policies and candidates that defend workers' rights.

Every dollar you give to CWA PAF is put to work building political power for you, your family and your future.
