Hillary Clinton to Address NEA Representative Assembly

Presumptive Democratic Nominee will deliver remarks to annual gathering of 7,500 educators

WASHINGTON - June 29, 2016 -

WASHINGTON― Secretary Hillary Clinton, presumptive Democratic Presidential Nominee, will address more than 7,500 delegates at the National Education Association’s 95th Representative Assembly (RA) in Washington, DC on Tuesday, July 5, 2016. In October, NEA educators recommended Secretary Clinton in the Democratic Primary.

The RA is the top decision-making body for the nearly 3 million-member NEA, and sets Association policy for the coming year. Delegates adopt the strategic plan and budget, resolutions, the legislative program, and other policies of the Association. Delegates also vote on proposed amendments to the NEA’s Constitution and Bylaws. NEA’s RA is the world’s largest democratic deliberative body.

NEA is the nation’s largest labor union, with its members representing one in every 58 general election voters. NEA households represent one in every 32 voters nationwide. NEA member households will be a robust and significant voting bloc during this fall’s election.
