A Message from NFFE National President Randy Erwin: NFFE Stands for Racial, Social, and Economic Justice

June DC-BLM protest

Brothers and Sisters,

I write today to make clear that the National Federation of Federal Employees (NFFE) is proud to stand in solidarity with the millions of Americans around the country who have been raising up in protest of the racial and societal inequality that plagues our great nation.

We are at a seminal moment in our history when injustices that have undermined our country for far too long have been laid bare, and the opportunity to correct them is within arm’s reach. In this critical moment, NFFE will stand on the side of justice.

We must never forget: an injury to one is an injury to all. That is a core principle of our great Union and the Labor Movement as a whole. A society with structural racial, social, and economic inequality serves as an injury to those marginalized, and NFFE stands for rectifying that injustice.

In these times, we must also remember that the fight for racial justice and economic justice are inextricably linked. Working people rise and fall together. Our strength is in our unity.

These times are difficult, and the solutions to our society’s problems are not easy, but a more perfect union is worth fighting for. Now is the time to take a stand for racial, social, and economic justice.


Randy L. Erwin
