National CAP coordinates the UAW’s efforts to educate, organize, and mobilize the 1.3 million active and retired UAW members in election campaigns and the legislative arena. It has organized rapid-response teams of volunteers — known as Congressional District Action Committees or C-DAC’s for short — that write, call, and fax their representatives and senators on key votes.

An integral part of National CAP’s strategy is building coalitions with other unions and progressive groups to elect pro-working family candidates at the local, state, and national levels and to promote progressive legislation.

National CAP also coordinates fundraising for UAW-V-CAP, our union’s political action committee. Funded by voluntary contributions from tens of thousands of UAW members and their families, UAW-V-CAP enables us to pool our resources to support pro-working family candidates.
