“We didn’t choose this. We chose hard work, family, faith & community. But b/c of bad policies, that wasn’t enough even before the pandemic. Now there’s more pressure on our communities than ever before.” -Pam Garrison @WestVirginiaPPC #PoorPeoplesCampaign
“Last week, the Reverend William Barber & the Reverend Liz Theoharis, co-chairs of the #PoorPeoplesCampaign, & former Vice-President @AlGore, joined the fight against the proposed Byhalia Connection crude-oil pipeline, which would run through Memphis.”
The Equality Act passed in the House yesterday. It’s yet another reminder that this country has always struggled w/ the meaning of “all.” Right now 2 Democratic senators want to deny millions of Americans a living wage, b/c they must not really believe in caring for all the ppl.
Watch this video, amplify these voices, and tell your members of Congress to #FightFor15. They need to get this done, one way or another.
NEW FILM from @DemCastUSA & @pttrn_ntgrty: #WeNeed15
Democrats, you said you would fight. Let’s fight. Overrule the parliamentarian.
Overrule the parliamentarian & force a floor vote. Manchin & Sinema won’t kill the bill. If they did, we’d know who they are. But a wage increase that will help 62 mil low-income ppl can’t be stopped by a rule. When a parliamentarian advised vs GOP tax cuts, Trent Lott fired him.
Over the last year, some 1.3 million public service jobs, many of them held by African Americans — including nurses, teachers, EMTs and sanitation workers — have evaporated because of holes the pandemic blew open in state and local budgets.
The evidence is overwhelmingly clear: Raising the minimum wage and eliminating the subminimum tipped wage is an urgent and necessary first step to helping the nation recover from COVID-19, growing the economy and lifting up communities across the country.
Send a message to @POTUS @JoeBiden & @VP @KamalaHarris! Let them know you support the #PoorPeoplesCampaign’s 14 Policy Priorities to Heal the Nation in the #First100Days.
