Delegates to the NEA Representative Assembly will get to hear first-hand from 10 presidential candidates who accepted an invitation to a forum at the annual event in Houston this Friday – and you can join them via a livestream of the event.
The #StrongPublicSchools Presidential Forum will occur from 3-5 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, July 5. Learn more and RSVP for the Facebook Live event.
Candidates will answer questions from NEA members about their plans for public education including how to provide opportunity for every student, how they plan to provide the resources and tools that attract and retain educators to the profession, and how they will listen to the voices of the professionals who know the names of the students in America’s classrooms. Other core NEA issues can be found on NEA’s StrongPublicSchools.org website.
Confirmed attendees include former Vice President Joe Biden, Former Secretary of HUD Julián Castro, Mayor Bill DeBlasio, Sen. Kamala Harris, Gov. Jay Inslee, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Rep. Tim Ryan, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren. All announced candidates for president from both parties were invited to attend.
