We Call for a Fair Endorsement Process in the National Education Association (NEA) for the 2020 Presidential Election!
We, the undersigned, are members of the National Education Association who call on our national union to wait to endorse a presidential candidate until after NEA members have had a chance to learn about the candidates through the first six DNC debates (held June 2019 through December 2019), and at that point, to decide which candidate to endorse through a national, binding, one-member/ one-vote of our members.
We are educators from all over the country-- paraprofessionals, teachers, graduate students, psychologists, nurses, librarians, professors, counselors, coaches, and more-- who are members of the National Education Association and who are committed to building strong, democratic local unions and a strong, democratic National Education Association national union.
The leadership of many unions have acknowledged that in 2016, labor’s endorsement process was rushed and excluded the voices of most members, and resulted in premature endorsements and membership discontent.
Therefore, we call on our national union to use the process described above.
If you are an NEA member, please sign this petition! If you don't want to list your full name publicly, you can put just a first name or initials. If you would like to try to pass this as a resolution in your local, please let us know!

Would you like to try to pass a resolution about this in your NEA local or at your state NEA convention?
Yes! Let's get it done!
Maybe! I would be open to talking to someone who has done it before.
No-- there's no way it could pass in my local.
