As our AFT president Randi Weingarten said, “this is a critical time to join forces because everything is at risk: our freedoms, our democracy, our schools and colleges, our basic economic safety net.” Her thoughts are punctuated by a NBC News poll in which voters ranked threats to democracy as the number one issue facing the country.
We all must vote—to protect our public schools and to defend our democracy and our freedoms.
