MFT59 Committee on Political Education (COPE) is one way we build power to win the schools our students deserve and the careers our educators deserve. We engage in electoral politics at the local level - Senators, Representatives, Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, etc. 

COPE supports candidates who support public schools, policies, that support our students, families, members, workers rights (Unions), and human rights. COPE also works to educate members and the community about how policy decisions impact our students, schools, and educators,. In addition to candidates, COPE contributes to political party when it is in the interest of our endorsed candidates. 

Getting the inputs from our educators is an important value that we share. We are currently visiting sites and conducting surveys to get feedback from our members.
