Whether it’s opposing budget cuts or school closings, working with community partners or organizing to make sure special ed students get the services they’re entitled to, the union is fighting for our children, our schools and our members. Find out here about the current campaigns and initiatives in which we are involved.
Donate water filters for families in Puerto Rico
Fundraising | November 17, 2017
Most of our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico still have no reliable source of safe drinking water. As we head into the holiday season, you can help by making a donation to Operation Agua.
Campaign | November 17, 2017
The UFT is a strong union because of our membership. It’s why you have job security, teacher tenure, preparation periods, maximum teaching loads, premium-free healthcare and much more. Our enemies want to take all of this away from us. Now more than ever, we must stand together and take care of each other.
Fight for paid parental leave for UFT members
Campaign | November 16, 2017
UFT members spend their days nurturing and supporting children, yet the city’s current parental leave policy forces members to choose between their own children and their profession. It’s time that the city grants UFT members the paid parental leave they deserve. But we need your help to get it done.

Donate to the UFT Disaster Relief Fund to help victims recover from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
