Legislative and Political Action Teams

LPAT members at Summer Conference

BE HEARD! ADVOCATE FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION

Legislative and Political Action Team members advocate for issues that matter to you and your students — high-stakes testing, funding and the future of charter schools, to name a few. Legislative and Political Action Teams are overseen by Senate district coordinators — one for each of the 40 state Senate districts.

Why should I join A LEGISLATIVE AND POLITICAL ACTION TEAM?

You've been looking for a way to get involved. This is it! Legislative and Political Action Team members are MTA members who work by day as education support professionals, teachers, faculty, support and professional staff. LPAT members use their voices — and their expertise from the front lines of public education — to engage colleagues, fellow association members, neighbors, friends and family in influencing legislators and other elected and appointed officials.

What is a LEGISLATIVE AND POLITICAL ACTION TEAM?

Legislative and Political Action Teams are at the core of our grassroots campaigns program. Led by a Senate district coordinator and composed of a mix of MTA activists, the LPATs are charged with educating, organizing and mobilizing MTA members and the community around a truly pro-public-education agenda.

I'm Just one person. How can I make a difference?

One person can make a difference! Political decisions shape much of the work we do every day in public schools and public higher education across the Commonwealth. Our elected leaders and their appointees make decisions every day about issues that have a direct impact on us as educators, faculty and staff – as well as on our students, our schools and colleges, and our communities. Class size, curriculum and funding are just a few of the issues decided by elected and government officials that affect our work lives.

How do I join?

Reach out to the coordinator of the LPAT in your own Senate district. If you live and work in two different Senate districts, you have the option of choosing which LPAT you’d like to join. If you are not sure of your Senate district, you can find out at www.wheredoivotema.com.
