justice caucus

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  

      Work for world peace & disarmament

      Reduce the military budget and increase funding of education and other social needs

      Reduce violence

      Increase awareness of basic human and civil rights

      Support the right of all workers in all nations to organize and bargain collectively

      Support the concept of a free, quality public education for all, free from the fear of pre-emptive war and the restrictions of wartime occupations 

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.
