2014 Civil Rights Committee

Sisters and Brothers;

It is with great elation that I write to you about the Civil Rights Committee within AFGE Local 12.  My name is Stephanie Graf  and I am the Chairperson for this committee.  I have obtained training, information, and guidance from the leaders in our Local, and District 14, to insure that I can be of use in this position.  I want to extend an offer to anyone who is interested, to be a part of the new AFGE-Local 12 Civil Rights Committee at DOL.  If you have been a former member, I encourage you to please make known your intention to continue, as soon as possible.  Please send me an email no later than March 1, 2013 if you are interested in being on this committee.  Our committee meetings  will not impact your daily work schedule.  I will be sharing more about the mission of the committee at the next monthly meeting.  For now, I want to leave you with notice of the civil rights committee calendar as provided by AFGE, District 14.  Programs are already in the works for those highlighted in RED, but any suggestions for acknowledging these events would be greatly appreciated.

2014 National Women’s Advisory Coordinator NWAC

On May 17, 2014, the 14th District of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) Caucus delegates, elected one of our own, Stephanie Graf, as the new National Women’s Advisory Coordinator (NWAC).  Ms. Graf is the Agency Vice-President for the Employment and Training Administration, at the U.S. Department of Labor.   Ms. Graf will assist in the oversight of Affirmative Action programs for women in Federal and D.C. government agencies; the elimination of employment discrimination based upon sex; and provide the necessary consultation, services, and representation to some 60+ Locals in support of women's programs and organizations.  Ms. Graf’s area of coverage is the D.C. Metropolitan area and Europe.

Ms. Graf, originally from Indiana, is a United States Army retiree, and previously served as a Union Steward with the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), and the National Council of Field Labor Locals (NCFLL).  She is well versed on fighting for employees with barriers to employment, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Military Sexual Trauma, and insuring the fair treatment of all employees.

2015 Hospitality Committee

Hi All,

Local 12 is establishing a Hospitality Committee and needs volunteers.  The work of the Hospitality Committee will be to prepare for all Local 12 social events.  Right now, the responsibility of arranging social events (parties, films, speakers, luncheons, etc.) falls on the shoulders of a small number of people within the Local 12 office.   This is tremendously burdensome.  We need to spread around the responsibility.  Therefore, we are asking for volunteers to do some of the work involved with hosting hundreds of union members at various events.

If you would like to volunteer for this committee, please send your name to Megan at   Please do not respond to this e-mail other than to volunteer; if you cannot volunteer, Megan does not need to hear from you.  Megan will be compiling the list, so there is no need to respond to me; I’ll simply forward your e-mail to Megan.  Please save a step in the process!

Once we have a sufficient number of volunteers, I will set a date for a meeting.  Then, we’ll get the Hospitality Committee up and running.

Thank you,
