AEA Media Center
Our communications team works with news media across platforms to tell the stories of our members and local affiliates working together across Arizona to strengthen our advocacy efforts.
R. Scott Harnish, Kyrene Education Association member
Belonging to the association is important because it is the viable connection between the past, present and future. Knowing this, we are able to evoke the biggest change socially and politically for ALL. We are the voice and advocates for students, parents and educators.
