Welcome to WEA-PAC

WEA-PAC is the Washington Education Association's political action committee. WEA-PAC is the largest political action committee in the state and it takes all of us together to make it strong.

Our mission is to recommend and elect pro-public education, pro-labor candidates to office. WEA-PAC makes recommendations in races for statewide, legislative and local candidates.

WEA-PAC recommends and elects pro-student, pro-union candidates regardless of party affiliation. Candidates complete a written questionnaire and participate in an interview with WEA-PAC members. Based on the questionnaire and interview, WEA-PAC members make a recommendation.Together, we can help pro-public education, pro-labor candidates win the elected offices that affect our work and help our students!

Are you a candidate for office seeking WEA-PAC endorsement?  

Council WEA-PAC leaders manage the endorsement process locally. If you're interested in connecting with those leaders, contact Hillary Hunt or Cassie Carrillo.

With WEA-PAC, we have a stronger voice in the decisions that affect our classrooms and our schools.

Almost everything about our school day is decided by an elected official: class size, curriculum, instructional hours, even pay and benefits.

Our union is our voice in those decisions. WEA-PAC is the political action committee for WEA members like us!

As a member, you can be part the choice for which candidates WEA-PAC endorses. From school board directors to statewide offices, we need pro-education, pro-labor elected officials who will have our students' backs.
