Our Values

Environmental Justice: We support action at all levels of government to curb climate change, protect clean air and water in our communities, defend public lands, increase energy efficiency and energy access, keep dirty fuels in the ground, invest in clean and renewable energy sources, and regulate harmful pollutants.

Racial Justice: We support equitable treatment of all people, and believe that no one should be denied opportunities or rights because of their race, religion, or ethnic background. We support efforts to ensure that law enforcement and other public institutions treat all individuals equally as well as efforts to reduce mass incarceration. We also support enacting policies that ensure every person’s full inclusion and participation in society.

Gender Equity: We do not believe any person should be denied rights or opportunities because of their gender or sexual identity or expression. We support policies to end housing, employment, and health discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community, as well as policies to support survivors of sexual violence. We support enacting policies that ensure every person’s full inclusion and participation in society.

Healthcare: We believe that all people should have access to comprehensive, affordable healthcare, including reproductive health care and abortion care, as well as medically accurate sexual health education. We stand against efforts to restrict access to healthcare and encourage policies that expand health access for all, regardless of income, location, ability, gender, pre-existing condition, or immigration status.

Immigration Justice: We believe in a country that welcomes all immigrants, migrants, and refugees, and commit to making immigrants, regardless of legal status, race, religion, or national origin, safe and welcome in our communities. We believe that our country is stronger because of its diversity and so will stand against attempts to discriminate against immigrants on the basis of national origin, race, or religion. We support policies that reduce cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and policies that improve the conditions of migrants, refugees, and immigrants.

Economic Justice: We support policies that reduce economic inequality and support economic mobility, including policies to pay a livable and family-sustaining wage, narrow the racial and gender pay gaps, and combat workforce discrimination. We also support worker’s rights to organize and collectively bargain for fairer pay and better working conditions. Our economic system should be fair, fulfill everyone’s basic needs, and should offer opportunity to all regardless of socio-economic status or geography.

Affordable and Accessible Education: We support high-quality, fully funded public education that is equitable and empowers and respects communities. We support affordable access to public education, from early childhood to college education, that nurtures and provides opportunities to students and families, and supports the development and retention of highly qualified teachers. We believe education is a right that should be afforded to all, regardless of income, immigration status, or ability.
