Resource Guide for AFT Members
Tens of thousands of AFT members were personally and professionally affected by Superstorm Sandy. The AFT has created this online resource guide to assist members as they continue to work hard to rebuild their homes, restore and provide essential services to the public, reopen their classrooms, and help their students and co-workers put their lives back together.
In challenging times like these, the solidarity and support of the labor movement shines through. AFT staff are in contact with state and local affiliates to gauge their needs.
This is just the start of the AFT's work to help members affected by Superstorm Sandy; revisit this page for updates and upcoming volunteer opportunities.
