COPE supports candidates who support Minneapolis Public Schools by:
advocating at the state level for increased funding for our schools
supporting worker and union rights
partnering with us in their governance
In addition to candidates, COPE contributes to political party when it is in the interest of our endorsed candidates.
Getting input from our educators is an important value for COPE. We are currently visiting sites and conducting surveys to get feedback from our members.
