This morning we released a set of 14 policy and legislative priorities for the first 100 days of the next Congress and the Biden-Harris administration. Our priorities include comprehensive and just COVID-19 relief, health care for all, a federal jobs program and much more.
At our Moral Monday Mass Assembly on September 14 Biden said that under his presidency, “ending poverty will not just be an aspiration, it will be a theory of change — to build a new economy that includes everyone, where we reward hard work, we care for the most vulnerable among us, we release the potential of all our children, and protect the planet.” (Watch President-elect Biden’s statement from September 14, 2020 and also his and Vice President-elect Harris statements at the Poor People’s Campaign’s Moral Action Congress in 2019.)
We will continue to organize around the policy priorities of poor, low-income and impacted people to make this a reality. Please share this agenda far and wide, and use it as a tool to build power in your community.
Forward together, not one step back!
Rev. Dr. William Barber and Rev. Dr. Liz Theoharis
