Say what…

Hope…


5/13: Demand a strong investment in our communities and families!

Congress is moving forward with its negotiations on President Biden’s American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan. This is an important moment in our country: do we come out of this pandemic truly addressing the problems in this country to their fullest needs…or do we slide back into business as usual?

We’ve spent the past week detailing our recovery requests (which match the Congressional Progressive Caucus’ asks and pull from the THRIVE Agenda), so today we’re recapping in case you missed any. During this early stage, it is critical that we speak up loudly and frequently: we want the most robust, equitable, and forward-thinking recovery possible!

Call or email your Members of Congress and tell them you want to see the strongest recovery possible, one that moves everyone in our country out of this pandemic and aggressively addresses climate change at the same time! We want:

  • A pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients, TPS holders, and our 5 million undocumented essential workers who pulled us through the pandemic.
  • A plan to lower prescription drug costs, which has strong bipartisan support among voters, as Americans pay twice as much as other Western industrialized countries!
  • A Civilian Climate Corp that employs 1.5 million Americans, to modernize our infrastructure with green energy while providing good jobs after record job-loss!
  • Invest $450 billion in the caregiving industry, to support caregivers with universal childcare, investments in care facilities and training for workers, and permanent paid and family medical leave!
  • Expand Medicare, by lowering the age of eligibility to 50, adding dental/vision/hearing coverage, and empowering Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices!
  • Investments in affordable housing, with guaranteed housing choice vouchers every year, $70 billion for public housing repairs and maintenance, and eliminating the Faircloth Amendment that stymies our government’s ability to build new public housing.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand a comprehensive recovery and plan to address climate change. Choose 1-2 from this list to highlight…and plan to call back again about the others soon!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition to expel Marjorie Taylor Greene for death threats against other Members of Congress, and be sure to follow OD Action on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
