    Make your voice heard in the State Capitol

    While the CFT legislative staff works hard to promote legislation on behalf of members, your presence in the halls of the Legislature gives a human face to the CFT and our fight for high-quality education. The CFT provides numerous opportunities for you to meet with state legislators one-on-one and share your experiences from the workplace.
