AFT-Wisconsin's Committee on Political Education (COPE) is the coordinating body for AFT-Wisconsin political action. The COPE board, made up of AFT-Wisconsin activists from around the state, makes endorsements in elections based on voting records, questionnaires, and candidate interviews. These endorsements, along with endorsements by other affiliated labor organizations, serve as the basis for our organized political action, along with any campaign contributions approved by the AFT-Wisconsin Executive Board. No candidate contributions are ever funded by dues money—they all come from a fund of voluntary donations from AFT-Wisconsin members.
If you are interested in contributing to the COPE fund or serving on the COPE committee, contact AFT-Wisconsin President Kim Kohlhaas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
