BPAC is a local political action committee which engages members to take part in local politics. We develop proposed legislative positions, communicate with legislators and congress, make and support recommendations for political candidates, school board candidates, and ballot measures. We also communicate with the membership regarding committee activities via the BPAC Political Reality Newsletter. BPAC is governed by a board which is made up of 10 BEA members.
BPAC uses contributions (separate from association dues) to support candidates who support public education, at the state and local level. We also seek to increase membership in BPAC, OEA-PAC, and NEA-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!
