Political Education Committee (PEC)


Co-chairs: Jess Mullen and Michael Bellecourt

The Political Education Committee engages members and the campus community around electoral politics and policy issues at the local, state, and national level. In the past PEC has conducted candidate surveys to inform our membership on local candidate positions and made recommendations for endorsement. PEC has also tackled issue based policies through major lobbying and letter-writing campaigns, addressing the state budget, and engaging in graduate student contract battles. PEC’s work is coalition-based, partnering with other local unions and community organizations. If you are interested in state and local politics or in policy, becoming active in the Political Education Committee is a great way to support your union!
