National Education Association Fund for Children and Public Education


Help Support Pro Public Education Candidates – Give $20.22 for 2022

 

We are currently living in difficult times. COVID-19 has changed how we live, interact with family and friends and how we educate our students, not to mention the injustices in our world and Minnesota. As we slowly reduce COVID restrictions, we still have more work to do to help public education.

All of this has shown us the need for leadership and the importance of elections, not only in our state but at the federal level. But for us as educators, that has been clear in the last four years of the previous president’s administration. The funds that were raised in 2020 were instrumental in electing a pro-public education President Joe Biden, a very narrow majority in the Senate (we will take it) and a House that has been good to public education the past two years in 2020! The contributions you make will help us hopefully retain this advantage and possibly make it stronger! NEA-Fund-Logo-2012-High-Res.jpg

How can you help? This year’s NEA Representative Assembly is being held virtually again, due to COVID-19. A big piece of the RA is raising money for The NEA Fund for Children and Public Education (political action committee). Contributions to the NEA Fund are used to elect public education-friendly candidates and is non-partisan in nature. Issues such as ESSA, special education, testing and general education funding on a federal level have been major problems for quite a few years. Our hopes are with the pro-public education administration elected in 2020, we can make some inroads on these issues.

This is where your help comes in. A contribution from you to the NEA Fund would make a huge difference. I am asking Education Minnesota members to contribute $20.22 via the Education Minnesota PACtivist page. You can give as little or as much as you want but in the spirit of 2022, I am asking you give $20.22. This will go a long way in helping us elect public education-friendly candidates. It’s as simple as clicking on this link to contribute. As a thank you, there will be a drawing for 10 prizes from the members who contribute. For those who make a recurring (monthly) contribution, there will be a special drawing! Contributions must be made by June 21. You can see the list of prizes here. 

We have a huge opportunity to help elect more public education-friendly candidates to better education and our country. A contribution to the NEA Fund is a great way to get involved and make a difference.
