WHEREAS, international workers require and deserve protection and support from their organizations and the state regardless of documentation status:

RESOLVED, that the American Federation of Teachers will acknowledge, promote and build awareness of the multiple struggles international workers face in their work environments; and

RESOLVED, that the AFT will promote bargaining platforms and make available resources, including providing optional training that addresses international workers' concerns and challenges separately, and will protect them.
