OUR MISSION

Our purpose is to help state and local government workers exercise their First Amendment rights to freedom of association without threats or coercion from unions. We exist to provide Pennsylvania’s police, firefighters and thousands of other government professionals and workers with the resources and support they need to speak out with their own voices, apart from bureaucrats and the state and national unions steeped in their own, often lopsided and disconnected, political agendas. Free to Serve (FTS) is an initiative of Americans for Fair Treatment.
