NEA-PAC, or the National Education Association PAC, is one of the largest and wealthiest political-action committees in labor. Founded in 1972 as part of the NEA Citizenship Committee, NEA-PAC works towards raising funds for candidates of any political party who will support public education. Run largely by teachers, the PAC raises money by asking members for contributions, operating phone banks, and acting as voter registrars. NEA-PAC became part of a super PAC in 2011, and continues to be one of the most successful PACs in politics.
