WELCOME TO THE NEA MEMBERS FOR OUR REVOLUTION WEBSITE!
NEA Members for Our Revolution is a caucus of the National Education Association organized to:
- promote the principles of Our Revolution within the National Education Association and support candidates for public office based on their support for these principles.
- work through Labor for Our Revolution to develop closer ties between the NEA and the broader labor movement.
- bring the perspective of education workers to Our Revolution and help develop the Our Revolution platform on education.
Our nation is at a crossroads. As union participation rates decline, real wages of working people fall, and inequality grows (see USA Today,The New York Times, and Economic Policy Institute). Further attacks on our deeply embattled movement loom on the horizon (see NEA).
NEA Members for Our Revolution is an organization of educators who are progressive fighters in the struggle to turn back the assault on our lives and our dignity as working people. We are social movement unionists working to defend and improve the lives not just of our members, but of the students we serve and the neighbors in the communities in which we live.
