Endorsement Policy

CFA’s endorsement process helps CFA identify the best candidates for legislative and constitutional office, and helps candidates learn more about CFA and the CSU.

CFA members interview and evaluate candidates based on their views on a range of issues including, but not limited to, collective bargaining rights, funding for the CSU, and public accountability regarding the use of funds.

Help CFA’s program by contributing to CFA political funds. Learn more here.

Paid for by California Faculty Association. Not authorized by a candidate or a candidate controlled committee.
