In fact, EARLY VOTING has started in New York, so feel free to use the handy dandy NYSUT chart below if you want to get a head-start on democracy prior to 11/3!

CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN
The GNTA Social Justice Steering Committee met with Adolescent Advocates on September 23. We are looking to work together to STOP THE HATE. Stay tuned!
It's national voter registration day!
Today, Sept. 22, is National Voter Registration Day—and we want to make sure you, your friends, your family and your colleagues are registered to vote in this year’s election.
Click here to register to vote—then share this link on social media to spread the word.
The right to vote underpins every other right we have. This year, we face the four crises of the pandemic, the economic recession, the reckoning with systemic racism and the consequences of climate change.
This election is about creating a fairer, more just and more equitable country for all. It is our opportunity to build a strong, inclusive economy. It’s about electing real leadership at all levels of government to ensure we curb the spread of COVID-19, make healthcare a right and address our country’s other crises. This is about ensuring fair, unbiased federal courts to guarantee justice and transparency for millions of Americans.
We can invest in schools, states and localities to provide vital services, teach the next generation and keep public employees on the job.
But we can’t accomplish any of that if we can’t vote. Click here to confirm your voter registration status or get registered. Then share the link on social media to spread the word.
“We need in every bay and community a group of angelic troublemakers.”
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL!
Your commitment to educating our students during an unprecedented pandemic is unparalleled. As we make the transition back to in-person learning, remember to keep those masks on, keep your hands clean and sanitized and keep your social distance. Nothing replicates the in-person learning experience, and we cannot wait to welcome our students back!
