Join Sunflower Alliance, the Climate Justice Alliance, 350.org, and more than 500 other environmental and social justice organizations to demand that the federal government pass a People’s Bailout. The program outlines five principles for just COVID-19 relief and stimulus:
- Health is the top priority for all people with no exceptions.
- Provide economic relief directly to the people.
- Rescue workers and communities, not corporate executives.
- Make a downpayment on a regenerative economy while preventing future crises.
- Protect our democratic process while protecting each other.
Each principle is followed by an important list of concrete steps the government should take.
Senator Ed Markey, Senator Tammy Duckworth, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Mark Pocan, Rep. Debbie Dingell, Rep. Pramila Jayapal, and Rep. Barbara Lee have endorsed this program, along with an unprecedentedly broad coalition including environmental organizations, unions, community organizations, faith groups, and more traditional civic organizations such as the League of Women Voters.
Uniting this coalition behind a broad progressive agenda is a tremendous step forward in American politics.
