THE LIFE WE DESERVE
Jump to today’s actions:
We all deserve to be safe, healthy, and enjoy equal opportunities. But unless we elect Democrats, we won't live the lives we deserve, and voting safely in a pandemic requires a functioning USPS.
Biden understands the economy hinges on containing COVID-19. He has plans to tackle the pandemic's health and financial impacts and build a green economy with affordable childcare. House Democrats have already passed the Heroes Act and legislation addressing police brutality, voter suppression, environmental degredation, and restoring USPS.
Trump abandoned us to the pandemic, and his GOP enablers remain complicit. They refuse to vote on legislation to help us and our state and local governments, proposing tax breaks for the wealthy instead. Trump's inadequate, quasi-legal EOs don't work without money he denied the states. His crony DeJoy is destroying USPS to suppress our votes, while hurting veterans, rural and underserved communities, small businesses, and postal workers. Though their actions hurt everyone, they disproportionately harm BIPOC families.
We demand a Senate vote on the Heroes and Delivering for America Acts. We continue to work to elect federal, state, and local Democratic candidates. Together, we work to create safe and healthy communities with equal opportunity for us all.
