Details

America’s economic system and culture has from its beginning valued some lives over others. Both the pandemic and racial justice protests of 2020 exposed the injustices embedded in our systems, and the pandemic aggravated them.

We need to create a new normal that is unlike the old. The old normal wasn’t built for everyone. It was indefensible. America needs a new reality rooted in a Just Economy.
