Your Rights & Workplace

We need the working conditions to succeed now—and ensure the next generation of educators joins us.
We believe in taking collective action to ensure the collective good. When we raise our voices, we help every educator get the support they need to join, stay, and thrive in our profession.
We need and deserve fair salaries and benefits. We need and deserve safe workplaces that respect who we are and what we bring to our students. We need and deserve the right to demand change. Let’s redefine the workplace—together.

Inclusive Workplaces

When our educators are safe, welcome, and included, they can focus on educating our students. Here's what you need to know to about equity and the law at work.

Educator Voice

Advocacy ensures that we enhance student learning and improve educator working conditions–benefiting our students, schools, and the community as a whole.
