Whenever teachers attempt to leave their unions (whether as individuals opting out or as a group decertifying the entire union web and then reorganizing as “local only” associations), they sadly get bullied and harassed by state and national union leaders.
Sometimes teachers find that they really need legal advice, but they don’t have the resources to secure the advice. Because many organizations across the country really care about teachers, many have stepped up with pro-bono legal services to support teachers with their needs.
We hope teachers will be able to find the support they need from the organizations we have listed below. We will add more organizations as we learn of them.
