Become a founding member of the 1,000 Club and help Texas AFT promote quality candidates for election to state and federal office.
Texas AFT under state law is not allowed to use member dues money for political contributions to candidates. So voluntary contributions from members to the Committee On Political Education (COPE II) are the only means to provide direct financial support to candidates. Additionally, Texas AFT can only solicit from its members and their immediate family members for contributions to COPE II. (If you are unsure about eligibility, give us a call and we will help you figure it out!
For more information on signing up for COPE II, contact Ray McMurrey, Texas AFT secretary-treasurer, at 512-448-0130.
