Your Voice Matters

A Decade of Neglect

The AFT released a new report, “A Decade of Neglect,” describing how chronic underfunding and austerity measures have hurt our public schools. We have broken out funding, in both higher education and K-12, state by state. We want state legislators to see this report and understand how underfunding schools affects our students and educators. 

Make sure your legislators see the AFT's report on the underfunding of public education. Click here to send a letter. 

Families Belong Together

The AFT has taken steps to formally file a complaint with the United Nations. The zero tolerance policy that separates children from their families violates international law, including the U.N. Convention Against Torture and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. 

Families and their children separated at the border deserve justice Click here to add your name.

Tell DeVos: Arm schools with resources, not guns

Arming teachers is not a solution to school shootings. Educators want to teach, not be armed at school. Students and parents want schools to be safe and welcoming places. Click here to sign the petition.
