Legislative Education Action Program (LEAP)

LEAP is the Brotherhood’s Legislative Education Action Program — a member-driven effort organized at the local lodge level, guided by the LEAP Executive Committee, and administered by the Department of Government Affairs. LEAP’s primary goal is to ensure jobs and job security through political and legislative action.

We advocate for legislation that affects our members.
