American Federation of Teachers

We are 1.7 million teachers, paraprofessionals and school-related personnel, higher education faculty, government employees, and healthcare workers making a difference every day. The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) seeks to improve the lives of our members and their families; to give voice to their legitimate professional, economic and social aspirations; to strengthen the institutions in which we work; to improve the quality of the services we provide; to bring together all members to assist and support one another; and to promote democracy, human rights and freedom in our union, in our nation and throughout the world.
