Ensuring access to meaningful participation in our democracy is a key priority. Our work includes voting rights, ensuring a fair and accurate census, and educating the public about the importance of a fully staffed and fully qualified judiciary.
We work to highlight the need for reform in each stage of the justice system, from law enforcement and policing, to sentencing and prison reform, to re-entry.
We support making major investments in infrastructure; reducing foreclosures and ensuring accessible, sustainable mortgage loans moving forward; extending the protections of the Civil Rights Act to more minority populations; and creating quality jobs here in the United States.
We aim to transform American public education so that all young people attend and are fully included in responsive, welcoming, rigorous, and fairly resourced schools that prepare all of them, beginning in early childhood and continuing throughout their K-12 years, for college and careers.
The recognition of the basic human dignity of all people and their right to live freely is at the heart of the civil rights movement. Our work includes immigration reform and human rights treaty implementation and obligations.
Access to communications and technology is vital to thriving in our nation’s 21st century economy. Our work includes ensuring that new technologies further, not hinder, civil rights protections, and expanding media diversity and access to broadband.
