This summer season, Our Revolution started working with dozens of grassroots organizations to again the #PeoplesPlatform, a daring, progressive coverage agenda that it used to lobbying members of Congress to help throughout their August recess. The targets is to have the vast majority of the U.S. Home Democratic Caucus signed on to cosponsor the next payments after they return in September:

In Vermont, Rights & Democracy – celebrating it’s second birthday this Labor Day – is main the trouble to construct a grassroots motion round problems with financial, environmental, well being care, social, and racial justice.

From the historic Ladies’s March in Montpelier (20,000 individuals) to the Local weather March Solidarity Rally (5000 individuals), RAD has been working with different grassroots teams to unite Vermonters in resistance to the Trump agenda, and switch that power into constructing a typical sense, progressive agenda in Vermont.

This summer season RAD held occasions all through the state to advertise a individuals’s agenda that legislators can get behind after they return to Montpelier in January.

Our message is straightforward: Resistance isn’t sufficient, we want our elected officers to take daring steps to place laws on Gov. Phil Scott’s desk. That daring laws contains:

A common well being care system in Vermont, with a primary step being Common Main Care
Elevating the minimal wage to $15 an hour
Enacting paid household and medical depart insurance coverage
Improved employee protections, together with stronger enforcement towards employee misclassification
Investing within the infrastructure and protections mandatory to make sure clear water, clear air, and clear soils for all
