We work to address the deep inequities in our economy to ensure that all Americans can live secure and stable lives.
We need a new social compact with business that reenvisions their obligations to society on issues such as environmental and climate matters, economic opportunity for workers, paying their fair share in taxes, and racial equality in the pursuit of more equitable, sustainable growth.
We work to strengthen the public health system by addressing health disparities that are not only caused by inequities in access to medical care but also by inequities in other social determinants of health, including income, education, and a person’s lived environment.
We seek to ensure that every American who works a full-time job can live a life of dignity and that all Americans can rely on strong and stable support programs when they need them. This includes expanding and streamlining vital programs, increasing wages, and creating economic mobility for all.
Embracing the diverse experiences and meeting the challenges faced by women across race, ethnicity, disability, sexuality, and other factors is central to inclusive growth. We work to secure women’s health, autonomy, economic stability, and access to equitable opportunities.
