For the past year and a half, our issues have been front and center on the national stage.
The work we’ve done has started to pay off. That’s why Democratic presidential candidates have put our issues front and center. And many have participated in AFT town halls.
We need to be more engaged than ever; and this week, we have an opportunity to make sure the entire country is paying attention. We can try to make sure what we’re fighting for is discussed during Democratic presidential debates.
We want to hear the candidates discuss issues that are important to us. Feel free to write your own question, but here are a few suggestions:
Do you support the teachers and school staff who have walked out and gone on strike around the country, and what is your plan to fully fund public education?
A year ago this week, the Supreme Court overturned years of precedent to rule against unions in its Janus decision. What are your proposals to help working people organize in the aftermath of that decision?
When are the debates,and where will they be held?
