Make your IMPACT today!

With only a month left, the PAC’s Peak Challenge is headed into the final stretch, and we are in dire need of your financial support! We’re running behind our goal to raise $25,000 for your ATPE Political Action Committee (ATPE-PAC) by May 1. So far, we’ve only been able to raise $8,370. A $5 donation today will put us closer to meeting our goal.

As you know, the primary elections have concluded, but the work is not over. We’re happy to report that ATPE-PAC had a great winning percentage in the March primaries. Many of the candidates to whom we gave a financial contribution won their election, while a handful of others have a runoff election in May. Those victories present us with a great opportunity to pick up a couple more seats in the Texas House, but we’re going to need your help.

To continue our winning momentum, we need to financially support those candidates who have a primary runoff race on May 22. Without your financial help, our allies will not be able to compete against a group of six wealthy Texas families who have poured a ton of their personal money into the coffers of candidates who share their vision to send public dollars to private entities with zero accountability. These families also support the idea of getting rid of your defined benefit pension and switching it to a 401(k) plan where your future benefits are not guaranteed.

You’re not going to let that happen, are you? I know you’re not, so please donate today to start making your impact! With so much on the line during the upcoming legislative session, it’s imperative that we have allies in Austin who will stand up against those six families that are bent on pushing their own public education agenda. I can tell you right now that their agenda is not likely to be education friendly!

Don’t let a handful of wealthy individuals tear down everything we have fought for! Let’s lay the groundwork for a productive legislative session by supporting our allies, who will work with us, rather than against our professional interests.

Big change start with you! Donate now.
