Today’s Action: Meet the THRIVE Agenda!

We all know the year we’ve had. A pandemic which has killed nearly 550,000 Americans and devastated our economy. A national outcry over systemic racism, not just in police brutality and violence but in every corner of our society. Overcoming the oppressive and hateful Trump administration, knowing that recovery from his policies will be a long road ahead of us.

All of this and more is why Congressional progressives have introduced the THRIVE Agenda, a $10 trillion ten-year plan to build back our country better than it’s ever been.

Call or email your Members of Congress and tell them that our recovery plan must be the THRIVE Agenda, and nothing less!

So what’s in it?

  • creates millions of well-paid, unionized, green jobs which replace our struggling infrastructure with green energy and transportation
  • boosts the ability for workers to unionize in currently low-wage industries

 

  • invests in public health in underserved communities

 

  • provides support and pay for millions of under/unpaid caregivers of the elderly and sick, and investing in childcare for families

 

  • modernizes homes to be more energy efficient

 

  • cleans up pollution and public lands

 

  • creates green and local opportunities for farmers and rural communities

 

  • transforms and invests in our industrial workforce to tackle green energy production needs

 

  • invests in communities of color and strengthening Native Nation sovereignty to ensure these policies support EVERYONE

 

Are you as excited as we are?

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and tell them you approve of the THRIVE Agenda to rebuild our country. A $10 trillion investment in infrastructure, unionized jobs, and BIPOC communities, all while combating climate change, is exactly what we want!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding the Senate pass common sense gun safety laws, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
