The AFT Disaster Relief Fund is used throughout the year to provide support to members and communities directly impacted by a natural or man-made disaster. In the past, this has included losses from hurricanes, wildfires flooding, and earthquakes. We’ve been coordinating with the teachers’ unions in countries that border Ukraine, including Poland, Romania and Slovakia. Through our disaster relief fund, we’re going to send money to these unions’ relief efforts. They’re setting up welcome programs in public schools for the children who have fled the horrific Russian invasion. Eventually, we hope to be able to send support to the teachers in Ukraine to open back up the schools after Russia is forced back out of the country.

Every dollar that we raise goes straight to relief efforts, without us taking away any overhead fees. Any money you can give today to the relief effort will directly help efforts to support the refugees.
