We cared, fought, showed up and voted. And we won.

Friend, The American people had their voices heard and their votes counted, and their will was clear and decisive. On behalf of the 1.7 million members of the AFT, our officers and our staff, we congratulate Joe Biden and Kamala Harris on securing enough electoral votes…

Count every vote 🗳️

John, We’re in a crucial period for our democracy. When we woke up this morning there were 30 million votes that still had not been counted. And while Joe Biden led the popular vote and the Electoral College, it was only Donald Trump who claimed (falsely) he had won. S…

I’m in Raleigh, N.C., with the Rev. Dr. Barber

John, When we say that this is the most important election of our lifetimes, we mean it. That’s why I’ve been touring the United States by bus for the last month, talking to working people and encouraging them to get out and vote like our future depends on it—because i…

Re: Early Voting and Vote by Mail

Friend, Our vote is our voice. If we want to change the course of our country and build a better future for all Americans, we need to make sure Joe Biden and Kamala Harris win this election. To do that, we need to make sure that we vote in numbers too big to rig and t…
