Get Involved

When it comes to public education, OEA members are the experts, and they have a right and a need to be heard. That’s what OEA’s political and lobbying programs are all about, but those programs are much stronger when you get involved. Political action is one of the most important ways members can affect the future for students and school employees.  OEA’s political efforts have always been driven by members, for members and students, and for the improvement of public education.
