We are calling on candidates for public office in 2024 and beyond to endorse a moral public policy agenda that can expand democracy to all people and the end crisis of death by poverty and low wealth, which kills 295,000 people each year.

 

 


Our 17 Point Agenda

Abolishing poverty as the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S.

A living minimum wage of at least $15 +/hour (indexed for inflation)

Full and expanded voting rights

No more voter suppression

Guaranteed workers’ rights & labor rights

Healthcare for all

Affordable, adequate housing

Strong social welfare and safety net programs

An end to gun violence, profit and proliferation

Fully protected women’s rights

Environmental justice that secures clean air & water

Justice for all Indigenous nations

Fully-funded public education

Just immigration laws

Addressing militarism and the war economy

Standing for peace not war; an immediate cease fire in Gaza that allows humanitarian relief, the release of all hostages, and peace with justice to be pursued; and an end to genocide, around the world

An end to hate, division, and the extremist political agenda
