The Omaha Education Association Children’s Action Fund (OEA CAF) uses voluntary contributions from OEA members for political purposes, including, but not limited to, making contributions and expenditures on behalf of friends of public education.
The OEA CAF Board works on your behalf in a number of ways. Through PACE, the OEA Political Action Committee for Education, we keep track of bills that come before our State Legislature. We communicate with members of the legislature on our positions and review legislative actions so we can determine whether a legislative member is a friend of education. Another role of the PACE Committee is to interview prospective candidates for School Board and State Legislature. Interviews are held and then recommendations are made. OEA CAF members chair the interview committees and serve on the interview teams. The OEA CAF Board also has the power to authorize contributions to candidates who are recommended. Contributions from OEA members makes all this possible. We encourage you to join the OEA PACE Committee and participate in this critical work!
