Additional Information: 

Elizabeth Warren is a Senator from Massachusetts who assumed the position in 2012. She won re-election to the Senate in 2018. She defeated Republican candidate, Geoff Diehl, and won with 60% of the popular vote. Before entering a career in politics, Warren was an educator, notably teaching Harvard Law.

Warren has always championed the rights of unions, particularly those of teachers stemming from their background as an educator. This has made the Senator a favorite among teacher union groups. The phrase, “Educators for Elizabeth Warren,” first appeared on signs at the American Federation of Teachers national convention. Warren was invited to be a guest speaker here and the phrase appeared here in a show of support to Warren from local teacher unions. Warren campaigned for U.S. President in 2020, but suspended campaign in the primaries.
