New Business Item 137 (2019)Referred to the Appropriate Committee
The National Education Association (NEA) will create an electronic platform "Educators Elect Educators." This would include a comprehensive database of all educators running for elected office from around the nation and would allow individuals to make targeted donations. The database would include the candidates' names, state, and biographical information, and a donation link to each candidates donation webpage.
NEA and its members need to support each other when we run for elected office. This is not in place or in lieu of PAC donations.
