Founded in July, 2006, we are a peace and justice organization registered as a issue caucus in the American Federation of Teachers.

MISSION STATEMENT

The AFT Peace and Justice Caucus will be an issue caucus with the mission to promote peaceful solutions to world conflict and economic and social justice at home and abroad. 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

The Caucus will also undertake to educate AFT members about various issues that address the above concerns through literature, forums, and other public events.
