About Your Data

AFT Washington collects member contact data from a variety of sources.

1. When you join a local, you must provide some contact information, such as included in this example membership application. Your contact information is added to AFT's national database, Connect. We are able to access your provided information through that database. This is the source of most of our contact lists, such as the Weekly Update newsletter.

2. If you register for an event with us or sign up for an AFT Washington newsletter, we may update our contact records with your provided information, and we will use your provided information to contact you.

3. We do not collect user information through this website other than by providing a signup form for our political newsletter, the Legisletter. By providing that information, you are requesting to receive that newsletter. Any additional sign up methods that appear on this website are controlled by AFT national, not AFT Washington, who sometimes syndicates signups through the sidebar.

If at any time AFT Washington contacts you through a channel you do not want to be contacted, you can request removal by contacting Briseida Sanchez at bsanchez AT or Cortney Marabetta at cmarabetta AT Note that this only opts you out of AFT Washington communications. You can also opt out of AFT Washington's emailed newsletters through the unsubscribe link included in each email, and you can opt out of AFT Washington texts by replying STOP to a message.
