The Beaverton Political Action Committee (BPAC) is a local political action committee which encourages members to take part in local politics. BPAC develops proposed legislative positions, communicates with school board members, city and county leaders, state senators and representatives, and makes and supports recommendations for candidates for elected office and ballot measures. The committee also works to communicate with and mobilize BEA members regarding political news and actions. BPAC is governed by a board which is made up of 10 BEA members.
BPAC uses member contributions (separate from association dues) to support candidates at the state and local level who support public education, as well as local ballot measures that we endorse. Members can increase our local’s political strength by donating to BPAC. Even just a few dollars makes a difference. You can click here to donate to BPAC or OEA-PAC.

From the materials with which we teach, to the number of instructional aides at each school, the decisions we make at the polls have a very real impact on our day to day jobs. We can’t afford to be apolitical!
