COPE: Building Our Union's Power, Building a Better Future

COPE - our Committee on Political Education -- is the political action committee for AFT Washington. COPE enables our union to engage the membership in both creating our political agenda and in making meaningful financial contributions to support candidates who will champion our legislative agenda. We do not use union dues to contribute to COPE. All contributions are voluntary.

Want A Website For Your Local?

In this day and age, people look to the Web for information. As a result, organizations almost always need to have a website to compliment their communications. Unfortunately, not everyone has the expertise or time to maintain a local web site.

For this reason, AFT hosts free web sites to affiliated locals. To take advantage of this benefit, contact Sylvia Watson, AFT Washington Communications Coordinator, at 206-432-8084 or swatson@aftwa.org. Sylvia can help get your site set up and even provide hands-on training.
