NEA to Vote on Marriage Equality Resolution

The National Education Association (NEA) is reportedly considering adding an amendment at its convention in support of marriage equality, the vote could come in the next few days. The NEA is the nation's largest union with over 3.2 million members and spent 50 million dollars to help elect Barack Obama.

The weight of the decision holds political and financial implications for the future of marriage equality and adoption rights by same-sex couples.

Please urge the NEA to adopt the resolution calling for marriage rights for LGBT families.

We did it! We passed the new language, with little debate, and a clear majority of the nearly 10,000 teachers from around the country! There were many of us who wanted stronger language, but were happy to have something that would pass in more conservative areas.
Progress is being made.
