AFT Connecticut

February 2020 “AFT in Action”

February 28, 2020

AFT Connecticut President Jan Hochadel and Council 4 AFSCME Executive Director Jody Barr team up once again to co-host the latest episode in the state federation's podcast series. Their discussion is focused on the 2020 U.S. Census — and why a complete count is so important to union members and the public they serve.

Their guest is Connecticut Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz, who co-chairs the statewide Complete Count Committee for the Census. She answers union members' questions on the stakes in this once-in-a-decade effort and their role as trusted voices in communities where effective outreach is vital.


AFT Connecticut's podcasts serve to provide a deeper dive into issues impacting members and the wider labor movement as part of the state federation’s engagement and communications programs.
