Elections matter

Hillary ClintonThis is a crucial election. Who we elect can make the difference in reshaping our economy and reclaiming the promise of public education, healthcare and other vital public services.

The AFT was the first national union to endorse Hillary Clinton for president, and since our endorsement, we've been actively engaged in this campaign to ensure the issues that matter to our members, and the families and communities we serve, are part of the debate.

In vision, experience and leadership, Hillary Clinton is the champion working families need in the White House. She is a tested leader who is prepared for a tough fight on behalf of all our members, and she has shown she's ready to work with us to confront the issues that matter most. Hillary Clinton is the president we need to help us reclaim the promise of America.

Student debt often forces AFT members and their families to put off or juggle other things that matter—from car repairs to health visits to buying a home. We want to show the face of student debt, and shape the debate around the need for real college affordability solutions.

How has student debt affected you?
