Until we fix our broken economy, the American people will never truly have access to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We need a bold economic vision if we hope to ever fix this rigged system.
We believe healthcare is a right for ALL people, regardless of their ability to pay. Nobody should go without proper medical care in such a prosperous country.
Our tax system should be structured to require everyone, especially corporations, to pay their fair share. Tax revenue is what we use to get things done for the public benefit, and it’s time corporations give back to the country that has let them thrive.
Though our government has claimed to intervene in foreign affairs in the name of promoting democracy and security, military intervention has often resulted in the exact opposite for ourselves and the rest of the world. It’s time we reorient our foreign policy to focus on diplomacy and cooperation that will promote peace and prosperity for all.
Women have been at the forefront of every movement for social change in this nation’s history, yet inequality persists to this day. We need to protect the rights of women and ensure that all Americans, regardless of gender, truly have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Rather than work to extricate our criminal justice system from the darkest part of our nation’s history, establishment politicians have worsened the problems at all levels, from policing to sentencing to prisons, all which disproportionately affect the most marginalized members of our society. We need to fix our broken criminal justice system now to guarantee that the law is truly just.
No taxation without representation. The right to vote must be protected for ALL Americans. Complete and unrestricted ballot access is essential to a functioning democracy.
While many have noted the assault on the LGBTQIA community by the current administration, the fact is that Congress has refused to act on anti-LGBTQIA discrimination for decades. We must pass comprehensive legislation that guarantees the promise of liberty and freedom for ALL Americans, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
We need to fix our broken immigration system and provide undocumented Americans with the pathway to citizenship that politicians have promised them for decades.
Climate change is real and poses a dire threat to humanity. It’s time to get smart about investing in a robust renewable energy economy so that we can protect our planet while creating jobs and opportunity in the process.
The influence of money in politics has moved our government away from a democracy and towards a plutocracy. In order to create a government that is truly accountable to the people rather than corporate interests, we need legislation that gets money out of politics once and for all.
That even one veteran has to struggle to get by when they return home is a national travesty. People who have sacrificed so much for this country deserve the opportunities that they were promised, and so much more.
Education, like healthcare, is a right, not a privilege. It is an absolute necessity for social mobility and innovation. Our children should all have equal access to the quality education they deserve.
It seems nowadays that our elected officials are more concerned with denying racism than actually addressing the rampant inequality plaguing communities of color. We will fight to finally address the injustice that denies people of color the opportunities and rights they deserve.
Over the past decades, the Internet has served as a great equalizer, an opportunity for small businesses and voices who may not otherwise have a platform to compete in the market alongside big corporations and other powerful entities. Online freedoms must be protected.
