WEA-PAC

What is WEA-PAC?
  • “PAC” stands for “Political Action Committee.” WEA-PAC membership costs only $2.25 per month. The money is used to support pro-education political candidates, regardless of their political affiliation
  • In the past, teachers asked the state and the legislature to improve education funding and to increase compensation for public school employees. For the most part, they got nothing.
  • A few years ago, teachers got smarter and came to the realization that if significant change was to occur, they would have to make it happen.
  • The WEA Political Action Committee’s main focus is to support pro-education legislators. IEA encourages all members to join WEA-PAC. Forms are available from building reps, the IEA office or may be downloaded here. Simply send or deliver the form to the IEA office (not through district mail) to become a WEA-PAC member.
Why Should I Join?
