Hispanic Affairs Committee

When we founded the UFT Hispanic Affairs Committee in 1986, our goal was simple: to help inform members about cultural, pedagogical and professional issues affecting Hispanic educators.

Over the years, we have broadened our focus to include our actual classroom practices and the day to day realities faced by educators, students and families.

HAC's Steering Committee is made up of volunteer UFT members. They guide and implement the committee's goals.

We are committed to creating a forum where all educators, especially Latino educators, can have a voice in ensuring quality teaching and high standards for all students. We look forward to you joining your voices with ours!
