When the NEA RA is held in a state that does not align with our beliefs/resolutions, the NEA will hold a voluntary event (the day before the RA) to support our students, members, and all others impacted who reside in that state to demonstrate our NEA policies and beliefs. We must show solidarity for those who face discrimination.

Rationale/Background

NEA is the largest labor union, and a voice for social justice. We need to continue to be the voice that calls out injustice when we encounter it and demand elected officials to respect the rights of all.
