Letter from NEA President Lilly

NEA Home

NEA members will be hugely important in deciding the next president. Do you know how I know? In the last presidential election, one in every 39 votes cast was made by an NEA member or family member.

And since that election, we have come together like never before to fight for our students, higher wages, more resources, and better funding.

The 2020 election may seem far away, but right now the presidential candidates are defining their priorities and we have a unique opportunity to make public education a top-tier issue.

Today, I’m so proud to launch NEA’s new election site, StrongPublicSchools.org. It’s designed keep you informed and empowered to support candidates that share your values. Check it out. »

With constant attacks on public education from an unqualified education secretary, billionaires, and special interests, we must continue to come together and make our voices heard. We must make sure that all students, regardless of where they live, have the support, tools, and time to learn. After all, a quality public education is the foundation of a thriving, equitable society.

I hope you’ll take the time to visit StrongPublicSchools.org and find out how you can get involved.

Go! Fight! Win!
