Together, they can create a world where they all have what they need to thrive, achieve, and feel their full worth at home, at work, and in their communities. They can change how they measure success. Their yardstick will be the health and happiness of all people and the wellbeing of their planet.
They're up against tremendous forces. An economic and political system designed to benefit corporations and a tiny few, pushing the rest of us to the margins. Systems of racism and exclusion that perpetuate violence and deny people even the essentials based on race, gender, and country of origin.
Here’s the good news. All these systems are the creations of people. They can be dismantled and remade by people. And, at People’s Action, they’ve signed up for this reimagining and rebuilding.
Their history’s most powerful movements teach us an important lesson: They won’t win more by demanding less. So, they’ve got their sights set on the long term. While they fight for change here and now, they’re also working to rebuild Their economy and create a democracy for all of us.
They’re organizing millions of people around a bold agenda for real change. Their agenda isn’t a list of policies the establishment says they can win. It reflects what communities across the country must win. Knowing change starts close to home, they’re building powerful organizations nationwide where people of all races, faiths, and genders gather to make change. They’re developing local leaders who can power their campaigns and policy makers at all levels of government, and advance a national agenda worth fighting for. In short, they’re creating a movement made up of people like you.See more
