Get Out the Vote! Volunteer for FEA Days of Action

From Andrew Spar, President of the Florida Education Association (FEA):

We need your help. We need members who have some time to volunteer for one of our days of action in which we will call friendly union members to remind them to vote. This is all done virtually, so members can call from the comfort of their own home. All anyone has to do is sign up and we will contact them.

Election 2020: Urgent call for your involvement

It goes without saying that the 2020 election is critical for not just the nation but for Florida and for education. To quote Becky Pringle, President of the National Education Association (NEA), speaking at the United Faculty of Florida (UFF) virtual Senate meeting this week:

“We need a new president. We need a new president. And elections run through Florida. I need you to step up in this moment and be the strong voices that you are. Social Justice is on the ballot.” And with regard to education, “All that Betsy DeVos has done to education is on the ballot…I have talked to Biden and Harris both. They are committed to our public schools and higher education…I’m asking you to show up in this election and to bring people with you. We can not have four more years of Betsy DeVos. Our students are depending on us to be worthy of them and I know that we are.”

In addition to voting for candidates that support public and higher education, UFF urgently needs funding to continue the fight by lobbying and supporting Florida politicians that support our educational interests. The recent primary season really drained the UFF-PAC fund. UFF is asking for your contributions. Here is how you can contribute:
