Our Revolution & The People's Platform

Our Revolution & The People's Platform

Our Revolution is promoting a People's Platform for positive change, and you can help support it.

The progressive left is not alone in wanting to channel the energy of 2017 toward more than #resistance. A majority of Americans feels that Democrats need to communicate "an affirmative vision or message beyond a desire to boot Trump out of office." The good news is that while members of congress are working on it, Our Revolution is ready to get it done.

The People's Platform draws together several bills already introduced in the House of Representatives, and calls on Democrats to sign on:

  1. Medicare for All: H.R. 676 Medicare For All Act

  2. Free College Tuition: H.R. 1880 College for All Act of 2017

  3. Worker Rights: H.R.15 - Raise the Wage Act

  4. Women’s Rights: H.R.771 - Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH Woman) Act of 2017

  5. Voting Rights: H.R. 2840 - Automatic Voter Registration Act

  6. Environmental Justice: Climate Change Bill - Renewable Energy (More details soon!)

  7. Criminal Justice and Immigrant Rights: H.R.3543 - Justice is Not For Sale Act of 2017

  8. Taxing Wall Street: H.R. 1144 - Inclusive Prosperity Act

If you like the sound of this, you can help. First, sign Our Revolution's petition to congressional Democrats. Then get ready to reach out to Democratic representatives whose phones have been so quiet, while we've focused on pressuring Republicans.

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.

Grassroots pressure has persuaded Republicans to uphold the Affordable Care Act (in some sense, so far). You did that. You can absolutely get Democrats to back Democratic priorities.

Who's ready?
