We have a tradition of helping our union family members impacted by disasters.
Our members need our help. The latest disaster is damages from Hurricane Hanna on the lower Gulf Coast and in the Rio Grande Valley, and the devastating destruction from Hurricane Laura. AFT’s local unions worked around the clock to check in with our members, their families, students, and communities during the hurricanes.
Texas AFT and AFT are providing direct aid to our school employees and their families impacted by heavy winds and flooding. Donate now to help out!
Texas AFT has a long history of assisting members in need during catastrophic events (the Bastrop fires, Hurricane Harvey, Houston flooding, Hurricane Maria, and the Dallas tornado) by distributing relief checks, and in many instances providing a place to stay and regroup or hands-on labor for cleanup. Please help continue these efforts by donating to our Disaster Relief Fund. All proceeds are distributed directly to members during disasters. Any amount is welcome, but recurring donations keep the fund healthy. Donate now!
