Local races can have major impacts on schools this fall

Education Minnesota can help your local union create a campaign plan to win your levy or school board election this fall and in the future.

Of the November 2019 levies that the union helped support, 92 percent passed at least one question, and all of the locals that received assistance from Education Minnesota elected a majority of their endorsed school board candidates.

Education Minnesota can help your local with:

  • Working with other organizations, like the AFL-CIO Area Labor Councils and other unions.
  • Data, such as targeted voter lists and phone banking lists.
  • Equipment, like laptops, cellphones and calling minutes.
  • Design and printing of materials.

Education Minnesota’s Political Action Committee makes funds available to locals for use in campaigns. To be eligible, a percentage of a local’s members must be contributing to the PAC. 

Need help? Contact Jim Meyer, jim.meyer@edmn.org, for levies and referendums or Anna Brelje, anna.brelje@edmn.org, for school board races.
