At the end of last year’s Democratic presidential primary, we created the most progressive platform in history. Together we scored huge gains by getting free college tuition, closing private prisons, and creating a $15 national minimum wage into the driving document of the Democratic Party.
Now, we’re asking you to join our campaign to get Democrats in Congress to sign on to our #People’sPlatform--eight bills currently in the House of Representatives that will address the concerns of everyday Americans. Each one of the bills below embodies an important part of the Democratic Party’s platform. From universal health care access to saving our environment from fossil fuels, we need your help to make these ideals a reality.
If Democrats want to win in 2018 and beyond, we need to start by supporting legislation that addresses the real issues facing everyday Americans. Sign our petition to show your support for a legislative agenda that puts people first. We will be delivering your petitions to the Democratic National Committee on July 25th. Join us as we organize for a #PeoplesPlatform!
During this summer’s congressional recess, Our Revolution, Democracy for America, Democratic Socialists of America, Progressive Democrats of America, #AllofUs, National Nurses United, and dozens of other organizations will be organizing to empower members like you to schedule a meeting, town hall, or direct action to demand Democratic members of Congress support the #PeoplesPlatform.
Democrats in Congress must lay out a bold vision for how we create a country that works for everyone--not the just the very wealthy. In the wealthiest nation on earth, each and every American family should have the basic things they need to thrive. We’ll keep fighting until everyone has access to healthcare, free college tuition, a livable planet, and a job that pays a living wage.
Tell House Democrats-- resistance isn’t enough, we must move our country forward with a bold, progressive agenda. Co-sponsor our #PeoplesPlatform when Congress returns to session in September.
