NJEA and NEA have endorsed candidates in 11 congressional districts. NJEA has also concurred with NEA’s endorsement of Secretary Hillary Clinton for president.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE THIS ELECTION
Between now and Nov. 8 there are opportunities through NJEA and through each candidate’s campaign to make sure we win big on Election Day. You can volunteer with your county education association or volunteer directly to work in a candidate's campaign.
Check this calendar where you'll find scheduled campaign activities, including phone banks and other endeavors, for which you can volunteer.
If there isn’t an endorsed candidate in your congressional district, there may be one in a neighboring district or county who needs your help.
NJEA takes pride in its ability to organize its members to participate in grassroots politics. The Governor and the Legislature make decisions that affect our schools, our students, our communities, and our profession. Grassroots politics is not just an option, it’s our obligation. Use these resources to make your voice heard on Election Day!
