NEA shall review all existing governing documents (e.g; Policy Statements, Legislative Program, Resolutions, Constitution, and Bylaws) and where appropriate direct that these documents incorporate language that is democratically inclusive of all NEA members. Further, NEA shall use inclusive language in all future communications.


NEA is no longer a union of only educators and has not been for some time.  NEA is a union of public employees, all of whom NEA should recognize wherever possible in its governing documents and communications.
