The Issues

The issues impacting our workers, our communities, our people, and our planet are directly linked to the need to expand and protect our democracy. The rights of all people and the foundation of democracy is threatened by structural racism, economic inequality, and wealthy or corporate influence over governing.

Voting Rights

Our democracy is built on the idea that every citizen can participate in the electoral process and each ballot counts equally. We want to the voice of the people to count.

Money in Politics

The richest of the 1% have increasingly been able to put their mark on our democracy. Their values and interests differ from those of everyday Americans, and their mega-dollars diminish the votes and power of the rest of us. But we have the power to build a people-powered democracy.

Fair Representation

Americans feel disconnected from their elected officials as they witness gridlock, partisanship and obstruction. We are looking for ways to change the system so that we have a government that is of, by and for the people.
