MSEA members have a long tradition of effective activism at the local, state, and national levels. It starts with understanding that the laws and policies affecting public education are created, written, debated, and passed by people we elect.
Whether it’s rallying crowds with a bullhorn, trekking to Annapolis for face time with legislators, or connecting with them through mail, phone calls, emails, and Facebook, our citizen-activists make the case for issues that matter to educators, students, and public schools:
- Adequate school funding.
- Competitive salaries and pensions.
- Better working conditions.
- Fair and transparent evaluations.
- Professional respect.
Members’ voluntary donations to the MSEA Fund for Children and Public Education are our way of helping get pro-public education candidates elected and then making sure we hold them accountable for their promises once in office.
There are so many ways you can get involved today—help make our collective voice stronger!
