What We Want
Racism is America’s original sin. We want to unravel the vicious effects of systemic racism in health, education, law enforcement, criminal justice system and other areas controlled and influenced by the federal government.
We want smart, common-sense, and community focused answers for uprooting the disease of poverty that is destroying our communities.
We want an immediate end to the dehumanizing and destructive “War on Drugs” and a shift to treating addiction as a public health priority.
We want to immediately decriminalize petty criminal offenses and shift our focus from incarceration to rehabilitation.
We want to reinvest in our public education system to close the educational gap nationally and internationally.
We want all federal legislation to be scored and evaluated by a non-partisan organization for racial and environmental impact.
