Educators engage with elections because our professions are deeply impacted by elected officials and politicians. As public servants and advocates for public education, we work within the electoral process to advocate for our students and ourselves. Your political voice is one of the most powerful tools you have to enact change that can create better outcomes for your students.

OEA-PAC Works on Your Behalf
OEA-PAC is OEA’s political action committee (PAC). We use money that is voluntarily contributed by OEA members to elect pro-public education school boards, state representatives and senators, and statewide offices, such as governor, attorney general, and treasurer. Our PAC program is also coordinated with the National Education Association’s federal PAC, which serves as our voice in Washington and helps to elect pro-public education members of Congress.
