DemDaily: Real American Values

The debate around the convention and platform underscores the constant tug of war on messaging and the definition of what "our values" should be - as a party and as Americans.
What is not up for debate are issues that strike at the heart of working families: diversity, economic opportunity, preservation of pensions and social security.

Among the many organizations that strive to provide free tools to help candidates, political and community leaders, labor and activists frame and disseminate their message is Real American Values.

Those of us who value what the Labor Movement has created-the American middle class-realize that our opponents have a growing capacity to negatively impact public opinion about economic and social equality. The Labor Movement has to find new ways to get our message to the public and redefine the core values of the middle class."
-- Rick Bloomingdale, President, Pennsylvania AFL-CIO

Real American Values is a 501(c)(4) social welfare organization whose purpose is to educate and inform the general public about the positive benefit to our economy around:

  • Defined benefit pensions and union-negotiated health care plans
  • Labor/Management training and apprenticeship committees
  • Labor's long-term commitment to infrastructure & transportation funding at state and local levels
  • Public education, and
  • Opposition to efforts to privatize government services delivered by public sector union members

Founded by labor and political activists who have witnessed the impact of these issues first hand, Real American Values fights for access to good jobs, good wages, and good benefits for the middle class.
