Human Rights

​WE’RE FACING A STUDENT LOAN CRISIS -- ONE THAT’S HOLDING BACK OUR ECONOMY AND CRUSHING MILLIONS OF AMERICAN FAMILIES. WE MUST ADDRESS THIS CRISIS.





EVERY PERSON, EVERY COMMUNITY AND INDIGENOUS PEOPLES IN OUR NATION HAVE THE RIGHT TO CLEAN WATER, CLEAN AIR, AND ACCESS TO AND ENJOYMENT OF PUBLIC LANDS.





EVERY KID IN AMERICA SHOULD HAVE THE SAME ACCESS TO A HIGH-QUALITY PUBLIC EDUCATION.


No matter where they live, the color of their skin, or how much money their parents make.





Gender Justice

IT IS OUR MORAL IMPERATIVE TO DISMANTLE THE GENDER AND RACIAL INEQUITIES WITHIN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.


The rate of imprisonment has grown faster for people than men, increasing by 700% since 1980, and the majority of people in prison have a child under the age of 18. Incarcerated people also face a high rate of violence and sexual assault. We are committed to ensuring access to gender-responsive programming and dedicated healthcare including substance abuse treatment, mental and maternal health services for people in prison. We believe in the promise of restorative justice and alternatives to incarceration. We are also committed to disrupting the school-to-prison pipeline that prioritizes incarceration over education by systematically funneling our children—particularly children of color, queer and trans youth, foster care children, and girls—into the justice system.




GENDER JUSTICE. WE MUST HAVE THE POWER TO CONTROL OUR BODIES AND BE FREE FROM GENDER NORMS, EXPECTATIONS AND STEREOTYPES.


We must free ourselves and our society from the institution of awarding power, agency and resources disproportionately to masculinity to the exclusion of others.




iCare AND PREVENTION, OR MEDICALLY ACCURATE SEXUALITY EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT.


This means open access to safe, legal, affordable abortion and birth control for all people, regardless of income, location or education. We understand that we can only have reproductive justice when reproductive health care is accessible to all people regardless of income, location or education.





Social and Economic Justice

Education Rights

​WE’RE FACING A STUDENT LOAN CRISIS -- ONE THAT’S HOLDING BACK OUR ECONOMY AND CRUSHING MILLIONS OF AMERICAN FAMILIES. WE MUST ADDRESS THIS CRISIS.

CIVIL AND POLITICAL RIGHTS

CIVIL RIGHTS ARE OUR BIRTHRIGHT.


Our Constitutional government establishes a framework to provide and expand rights and freedoms–not restrict them. To this end, we must protect and restore all the Constitutionally-mandated rights to all our citizens, including voting rights, freedom to worship without fear of intimidation or harassment, freedom of speech, and protections for all citizens regardless of race, gender, age or disability. We honor and respect tribal laws and jurisdictions.




IN A TRUE DEMOCRACY, EACH CITIZEN'S VOTE SHOULD COUNT EQUALLY.


All Americans deserve equality guarantees in the Constitution that cannot be taken away or disregarded, recognizing the reality that inequalities intersect, interconnect and overlap.




WE MUST SUPPORT CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM AND ANTI-CORRUPTION LEGISLATION.


Money slithers through every part of our political system, corrupting democracy and taking power away from the people. Big companies and billionaires spend millions to push Congress to adopt or block legislation. If they fail, they turn to lobbying federal agencies that are issuing regulations. And if they fail yet again, they run to judges in the courts to block those regulations from taking effect. We must support campaign finance reform and anti-corruption legislation.




NO PRESIDENT IS ABOVE THE LAW.





WE SUPPORT A FAIR AND INDEPENDENT JUDICIARY.
