Our schools and communities are at stake. Fight back.
We are facing serious threats to our professions and communities: the right to form unions and bargain contracts; our collective voice and power to speak as one; funding for our classrooms and public services; a thriving economy. All of these priorities are in critical jeopardy, and if we don’t fight back to move us forward, no one will.

There will be no shortage of political ads on TV and in the mail, but it matters a lot more when friends and neighbors hear it from you.

The stakes couldn’t be higher, so get involved!

Submit your debate questions to MSNBC

by Beth Camplain | Jun 24, 2019
This primary is about ideas, so let’s make sure our fights are front and center.
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.

MSNBC is hosting the debates and will be taking questions online. You can submit a question here.

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?

There’s no wrong question, so feel free to go online and ask your own. This primary is about ideas, so let’s make sure our fights are front and center.
