Are you as frustrated as we are? What, exactly, is it going to take to get through to Democrats that the same old same old just isn’t cutting it anymore? That their deference and timidity in the face of some of the greatest challenges in our country’s history isn’t persuading anyone to do anything other than be on the wrong side of history. They — and we — can do better.
Well, we have an idea. To help make our voices heard, we’ve teamed up with over a dozen incredible, progressive organizations representing tens of millions of Americans who want Democrats to do more.
We’re calling it the Summer for Progress:
That’s right: Brand New Congress, Our Revolution, National Nurses United, Justice Democrats, Democracy for America, Democratic Socialists of America, Progressive Democrats of America, #AllofUs, Common Defense, Working Families Party, Millennials for Revolution, Women’s March, Labor for Our Revolution, People for Bernie, Young Progressives Demanding Action, Good Jobs Nation, Healthcare Now, Food & Water Action, and Fight for 15 are combining our progressive efforts in a really big way.
These groups are filled with people like you, all fighting for good with none beholden to the highest bidder, and we think it’s time elected Democrats joined us. It’s time for a #PeoplesPlatform that will pressure our leaders to support progressive legislation that works for everyone, not just the privileged few.
We the people have to fight to make changes. There’s power in numbers, and together, we will pressure Democrats in Congress to sign on to eight bills currently before the House of Representatives.
These are the eight bills we’re fighting for:
- The Medicare for All Act of 2017
- The College for All Act of 2017
- The Raise the Wage Act
- The Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH Woman) Act of 2017
- The Automatic Voter Registration Act
- The Justice is Not For Sale Act of 2017
- The Inclusive Prosperity Act
- A Climate Change & Renewable Energy Bill (more information coming soon!)
To make this movement truly effective, we need to add YOUR NAME, too!
What can you do to help with the Summer for Progress? Please sign the petition, today, to let Democrats in Congress know that you support the #PeoplesPlatform.
“When millions of people stand up and fight back, we will not be denied.”
You can also share the petition widely on social media and email it to friends and family. Use the hashtag #PeoplesPlatform to connect with other citizens who are ready to stand up and fight for a better future.
On July 25th, we’re going to deliver the petition (with your name on it!) to the Democratic National Committee in D.C.. We’ll post more details about this soon, so keep an eye out. Congress will see loud and clear what we want and just how many of us support these bills.
