SAN FRANCISCO: Bay Area members looking to join a COVID-safe, in person speakout can join the CA Poor People's Campaign at sidewalk outside office of Sen. Dianne Feinstein,
1 Post Street, San Francisco, CA 94104; email contact: madison [at] poorpeoplescampaign.org

SAFETY: Masks & Social Distancing Required at All Times

ONLINE: For the digital rally, go to https://www.poorpeoplescampaign.org/livestream/


We're fighting for a $15/hour minimum wage, the elimination of the subminimum wage for tipped workers, union rights for all, and full and just COVID relief.

As we have seen over the past 11 months, these issues are deeply connected. The crisis of poverty and low wages is directly connected to the injustices in our healthcare system. We know that 87 million people were uninsured or underinsured before the pandemic and millions have lost their healthcare in the worst public health crisis in a century.

In the richest nation in history, there is no excuse for denying the human rights of living wages, an adequate standard of living; and quality healthcare!

We’ll go live to the state offices of US Senators across the nation to hear directly from poor and low-income people and moral leaders about the needed $15/hour for all workers, immediate Medicaid expansion in every state, expanded funding for state budgets, ramping up vaccinations while tracking race and class to ensure equity in distribution, supporting public schools for safe reopening and more.

14 Priorities for the First 100 Days: The PPC Sends New Demands to Washington

https://www.poorpeoplescampaign.org/resource/policy-and-legislative-priorities/

On behalf of the 140 million poor and low-income people in the country, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival – and our 45 state coordinating committees, thousands of religious leaders, scholars, economists, advocates and hundreds of supporting organizations – insists that the following policies from the Poor People’s Jubilee Platform take precedence during the first 50-100 days of the new administration and 117th Congress.

The 14 policy priorities include:

--Enact comprehensive and just COVID-19 relief that provides free testing, treatment, vaccines and direct payments to the poor
--Guarantee quality health care for all, regardless of any pre-existing conditions
--Raise the minimum wage to $15/ hour immediately
--Update the poverty measure
--Guarantee quality housing for all
--Enact a federal jobs program to build up investments, infrastructure, public institutions, climate resilience, energy efficiency and socially beneficial industries and jobs in poor and low-income communities
--Protect and expand voting rights and civil rights
--Guarantee safe, quality and equitable public education, with supports for protection against re-segregation
--Comprehensive and just immigration reform
--Ensure all of the rights of indigenous peoples
--Enact fair taxes and targeted tax credits
--Use the power of executive orders
--Redirect the bloated Pentagon Budget towards these priorities as matters of national security
--Work with the PPC to establish a permanent Presidential Council to advocate for this bold agenda
