Fight for the public schools all children deserve banner

Advocating for Change

In every corner of America, we’re with you, fighting for our students. Fighting for our future.
We need to dismantle unjust systems. We need to fully fund public schools. We need to hold our elected leaders accountable to our communities. And we need your help to make it happen.
Ready to help us improve classroom conditions, secure school funding, and advance social and racial justice for all? Here’s how you can get involved.

COVID-19: Educating Through Crisis

NEA is here to ensure we rebuild schools with an emphasis on equity, return to the classroom safely, protect the most vulnerable students, and help educators navigate their rights and responsibilities amidst the COVID-19 crisis.

Racial & Social Justice

NEA EdJustice engages and mobilizes educators, allies, and activists in the fight for racial, social and economic justice in public education.

Educator Pay & Benefits

NEA helps build collective action for competitive pay, health benefits, and retirement security so we can attract and retain the best educators for our students.
