What does the TAA stand for? Well, the preamble of our new political platform hints at it:
The TAA is a democratic, feminist, anti-racist, LGBTQ+ inclusive labor union that is committed to education and economic and social justice for its members, their students and all of humanity. Our political platform is a document that broadly expresses the political values of the TAA. It informs the TAA’s positions on legislation, frames our messaging to the public, and guides the Political Education Committee’s recommendations for candidate endorsements.
The TAA Political Education Committee has been working on developing the TAA’s political platform over the past few months. Its members presented their draft of the platform at the March 2018 GMM, where it was quickly approved!
You can still play a role in developing our union’s political platform! During the GMM, members expressed interest in overhauling PEC’s initial draft of the Environment section. The Political Platform Working Group has agreed to continue meeting to produce a new draft of this section. Any member of the TAA interested in helping PEC with these final steps should consider joining us at our next meeting. Learn more by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
