Be an EdActivist
Public education is under political attack. We’ve got a new way to fight back.
Our members and supporters have long been our most powerful voice in the fight to protect public schools and students.
Our new EdActivist digital organizing program helps education activists like you make an even greater impact on voters in your community.
How it works
You bring your creativity, unique skillset and passion for supporting students; we supply the training and tools you need to increase your organizing capacity and scale your impact. And we use the EdActivist app to connect and mobilize.
Our mission is simple: We help educators and public education supporters connect with their communities and networks to score important wins for schools and students.
What you’ll do
The EdActivist program is primarily a remote/digital initiative, but members can choose to participate in in-person events, depending on their comfort level. There are two ways to be involved:
- Works with NEA to set up actions, and recruits and trains new members
- Requires a commitment of up to 5 hours per month
- Works with Team Leaders to execute actions, and recruits new members
- Requires a commitment of 2-3 hours per month
All EdActivists will get special perks, including exclusive swag, access to webinars and events with NEA and political leaders, and an invitation to attend a special event at the next in-person Representative Assembly.
