Take Action
Special Session called

TSTA is following the special session closely, especially as it pertains to property taxation (and therefore school funding). Be on the lookout for alerts from our Government Relations team for ways to take action as the summer progresses.

TTT day of action
Teach the Truth Day of Action June 10

Join us in observing Teach Truth Day on June 10, when educators will pledge to teach truthfully about U.S. history, defend LGBTQ+ rights, and speak out against anti-history education bills, banned books, and more.

Pride month

We lift up the vibrancy and joy of our LGBTQ family each Pride Month. Our celebration is all the more important following the hateful attacks on our community this past legislative session. Along with the parades and celebrations, we extend a heartfelt thank you: we see you standing up for your students and colleagues every day—and we appreciate you.

Racial and Social Justice

The Texas State Teachers Association believes that the path to racial and social justice lies with education. We have compiled resources you can use that amplify and celebrate racial and social equity in our schools, meaningful allyship and restorative justice.

Guns do not create safe spaces

WEP_GPO must go
WEP-GPO must go!

Many educators have their Social Security benefits reduced—or lose them entirely—due to the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and Government Pension Offset (GPO). Help us ensure that educators get the Social Security benefits they’ve earned. Ask Congress to fully repeal both the GPO and WEP.
