WE BUILD POWER THROUGH

Policy Change

We fight for policies and practices that improve the material conditions of low-income communities right now–even as we work to change the structures and systems that perpetuate injustice.

We work with community-based partners across the country to lead these campaigns because we believe the people who are most marginalized by injustice should play a central role in defining solutions and strategies to implement them.

National & Local Legislation

To be effective, organizing and policy change must function on all levels of government.

Elected Officials

We help strong leaders and, once they are in office, we make sure that they listen t our communities.

Policy & Idea Legislation

Some of the strongest policy solutions come from impacted people. We make sure our vision and ideas are heard by people in power.

POLICY HIGHLIGHT

Guaranteed Income

Guaranteed income policies can come in a variety of forms — for example, a periodic cash payment or an expansion of already existing tax credits. Expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC) would ensure that tens of millions of families currently living at or near the poverty line have the resources they need to provide for their families. These expansions should provide all families and low-income individuals cash payments significant enough to put those who most need it on a path to economic security and self-determination. They should also apply regardless of someone’s formal work status, including unpaid caregivers who take care of their loved ones as well as immigrants with or without work authorization.
