Ensuring quality public education for every student is a global effort. NEA supports students and educators in our global community through our membership in Education International (EI)—a worldwide organization of unions representing more than 32.5 million teachers and education employees.
NEA Solidarity Fund for Ukraine
We are members, educators, employees, and friends of the National Education Association who want to help our Ukrainian colleagues in this time of crisis. We are concerned about the welfare of Ukrainian educators, students, and their school communities—both nationwide and displaced beyond their borders—as the prolonged full-scale invasion continues.
All donations will benefit Education International’s Solidarity Fund for Ukraine to directly support Ukrainian teachers, students, and education communities. By providing direct aid to the Trade Union of Education and Science Workers of Ukraine (TUESWU) and regional affiliates, this fund enables responsive and effective support on the ground in Ukraine and in neighboring countries hosting refugees to help ensure education continues for all affected Ukrainians.
For more information on the fund’s work and our Ukrainian partners on the ground, please check out this article.

Our international work extends to participation in several campaigns and movements designed to uphold human rights, protect children, promote quality public education, and secure workers' rights for educators. Through our partnerships, we provide resources for NEA members to advocate for their global colleagues and their students. These campaigns include:
Education for Peace - Learn from history and how to foster a peaceful and just society.
Quality Education for All—We are working with education unions, professional associations, teachers, students, parents, and communities around the world to ensure universal access to a quality education for all. Learn more about this effort.
Ending Human Trafficking—Human trafficking is a modern form of slavery that happens around the world, including the United States. We have compiled resources to better equip educators to combat human trafficking and links to organizations where you can learn more about the issue and take action. Learn more.
Supporting and Educating Migrant Refugee Children — Since January 2014, more than 300,000 unaccompanied children have crossed into the United States. These children often risked their lives to get an education and escape poverty. We prepared a collection of links to educational resources to help educators support and educate those children.
Resources for Learning about Education Worldwide — We have collected reports and data to help you understand the state of education and advocate for students and educators worldwide.
Building a World-Class Education System State by State—We partnered with a National Conference of State Legislators (NCSL) working group that examines what the U.S. might learn from top-performing education jurisdictions around the world. You can learn more by reading the working group's report, No Time to Lose: How to Build a World-Class Education System State by State.
