Founded in July 2006, we are a peace and justice
organization registered as an issue caucus in the American
Federation of Teachers. The Caucus will advocate that AFT work for
public policies that
for world peace & disarmament
the military budget and increase funding of education and other
awareness of basic human and civil rights
the right of all workers in all nations to organize and bargain
the concept of a free, quality public education for all, free from
the fear of pre-emptive war and the restrictions of wartime
We have successfully supported resolutions calling for immediate
withdrawal from Iraq and opposing the expansion of the war into
Iran, advocating single payer universal health care, support for
immigrant rights and an end to ICE raids, defense of the Jena 6 as
well as support for striking teachers in Puerto Rico and Oaxaca.
The Caucus also undertakes to educate
AFT members about various issues that address the above concerns
through literature, forums, and other public events.
