Political Candidates

For our members and their families, civic and electrical engagement are critical to ensuring that corporate-funded special interests can’t get away with dominating American politics or our democracy. That takes backing candidates publicly committing to and supporting incumbents with a proven track record of standing up for working people at the local, state and federal levels.

AFT Connecticut’s Legislative and Political Action Committee (LPAC) will review requests for endorsement from candidates for state constitutional, legislative, municipal and school board offices. To be considered, they must first have signed a Statement of Principles for Public Officials.
