Guarantee Jobs at Fair Wages

Guarantee that anyone who wants a job can get one at a fair wage (with equal pay), through a federal job guarantee where our government offers full employment that produces goods and services that our national, state, and local communities need. That way workers and businesses can prosper.

Treat Racial Justice as an Imperative

Follow in the footsteps of the Poor People's Campaign and confront the ways our government has created and sustained systemic racial injustices, like the racial wealth gap, and rectify it.

Extend Super Medicare to All

Eliminate copays, deductibles, and prescription medicine charges, allowing everyone to get the physical, mental, and dental health care they need while reducing administrative costs by simplifying reimbursements.

Enable People to Balance Family & Work

Provide paid family leave, free child care and elder care, and $500 child allowances so that no one has to make sacrifices to balance family and work - especially women, who bear a disproportionate burden. Family responsibilities shouldn't hamper women's economic opportunity.

Level the Playing Field between Employer & Employees

Ensure a fair say for employees by requiring that they fill half the seats on corporate boards and secure collective bargaining so workers have a say in decisions concerning work conditions, outsourcing, automation, and enforcing equal pay for equal work.

Ensure Genuine Reproductive Freedom

Not only protect the right to abortion and an individual's ownership over her own body, but also provide free contraceptives and day-after pills for anyone who needs them.

Secure Equal Rights For LGBTQ & Non-Binary Individuals, Once & For All

Establish protections that enforce equal rights for LGBTQ & Non-Binary persons in the workplace, in healthcare, family life, the military, schools, immigration, and more.

Establish Legal Care for All

Establish a public single payer legal care insurance for all, covering the expense of personal criminal and civil legal representation so people can defend against discrimination, sexual harassment, domestic violence, wage theft, and more with their choice of legal representation.

Enact Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Provide immediate legal status with ability to work and travel home, with a path to permanent residence and then citizenship, to undocumented persons who have been in the US for more than one year.

Guarantee Affordable Housing

Offer eviction, foreclosure, and utilities protection with mandatory payment rescheduling.

Guarantee Quality Education at All Levels

Ensure that access to education does not depend on personal wealth or location by affording equal access to resources, higher teacher salaries, and free technical training and public college.

Guarantee Affordable Internet Access

Provide broadband for residents in all areas, rural and urban, and re-establish net neutrality.

Safeguard the Environment & Promote Green Energy

Recognize and enforce our basic social right to a healthy and safe environment, and bolster green energy systems.

Institute Campaign Finance Reform

Overturn Citizens United and work on a plan for the public financing of elections that ensures candidates have a means to support themselves, so no one's financial situation bars them from running for office.
