“I am voting for Tamika + Bryan for NCAE Leadership because this team has consistently provided leadership and organizing training for rank and file members for years. Further, their team has organized multiple campaigns and days of action to fight for the schools out students deserve. And last, all of their efforts are wrapped in racial & social justice, which is a necessary lens for our collective freedom.”

Our Team

We cannot do this work alone. Our team works tirelessly to push actions in their own locals, attend trainings, build relationships in their buildings and across their districts, and on top of all that manage to find time to support us in all the ways we need it. We couldn’t ask for a more amazing crew. Get to know the folks making this entire campaign possible.

It isn’t magic, it’s organizing.
