Tips for Congressional Offices to get involved in the 7th annual Infrastructure Week (May 13-20)

Make a plan for Infrastructure Week Infrastructure Week 2019 (May 13-20) is almost here! This annual national event, now in its seventh year, is led by a steering committee of business, labor, and policy groups. Together we are united in the mission to elevate awareness and catalyze action on the urgent need to rebuild, modernize, and grow America’s infrastructure, and to highlight its important to America’s economy, workers, and families. Our steering committee includes the AFL-CIO, US Chamber of Commerce, American Society of Civil Engineers, National Association of Manufacturers, Business Roundtable, and more. 

This year more than 500 affiliates across the country are planning 100+ events in Washington, DC and dozens of states. There are lots of ways for Members of Congress and their offices to get involved, from social media to touring sites at home in district. We made a simple Congressional guide to give you some ideas for how to be a part of Infrastructure Week 2019. 

Our message is simple. We must work together to #BuildForTomorrow. Our roads, rails, pipes and ports are too important to the economy, our health and safety, and Americans’ quality of life to keep delaying action. Americans overwhelmingly want the federal government to prioritize infrastructure. The time to act is now.
