aft disaster relief fund



When Mother Nature strikes, the effects can be devastating to entire cities, towns and communities. That is what we saw with the tornadoes that hit Moore, Okla., on Monday. And as we have done so many times, we must mourn those we have lost while, at the same time, trying to put our communities back together.

Our AFT brothers and sisters have been directly affected by this horrific event, and, as a family, we can help. Donate to the AFT Disaster Relief Fund and help AFT members who have had their lives turned upside-down rebuild after tragedy strikes.

I have been in contact with our leadership in Oklahoma. Thankfully, many of our members in the area are safe, but we have not been able to reach everyone. We know of at least one member who has lost a loved one and some who have lost their homes and possessions.

Donating to the Disaster Relief Fund will give direct support to AFT members affected by the storm. Please donate today.

We have seen too many tragedies across this country. From Superstorm Sandy to Newtown, Conn., our members have supported each other in times of need. We are there for each other; we are a family. Let’s lend a helping hand to those affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma.

I’m asking you to join with me in contributing to the AFT Disaster Relief Fund—every contribution makes a difference.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Oklahoma.

In unity,
Randi Weingarten
AFT President
