We Care, We Fight, We Show Up, We Vote
Whether at the bargaining table or the ballot box, the AFT provides a vehicle for working people and our communities to build collective power and accomplish what cannot be achieved alone. The more involved our members are, the stronger our collective voice is and the more effective our political role becomes.
With the 2020 presidential election underway, our members’ voices need to be heard. That’s why the AFT executive council approved a presidential endorsement process that aspires to ensure the greatest level of participation of AFT members ever, by expanding the opportunities for members to give input and feedback, providing for direct candidate engagement with AFT members, and striving for the highest level of member participation ever achieved in an AFT presidential endorsement process.
Together, we can ensure that our collective voice shapes the debate and that we elect a candidate who shares our values and vision for our country.
