What's Happening This Week

Join us Tuesday, Nov. 17 for a discussion about the People's Action Homes Guarantee national campaign!

Join Communities United For Action and John Washington from People's Action to discuss the national Homes Guarantee campaign and how it impacts our local work on Housing issues.

America is experiencing a public health crisis. COVID-19 affects and will affect poor and working class community members the most. Rather than prioritizing public money on corporate bailouts, we can stand united with frontline communities to ensure our collective well-being through this crisis and rewrite the rules to build a healthier and stronger country for generations to come.

This crisis illuminates the need for a robust public sector that can guarantee housing as a right: a Homes Guarantee.

What: CUFA Pop-Ed Series | Homes Guarantee
When: Tuesday, November 17 from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Where: RSVP for instructions to join this Zoom meeting

The National THRIVE Agenda

We must build a new economy to address the inequality and racism the COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare. On September 10, People's Action and several allied groups released a national agenda with eight key pillars: 

  1. Creating millions of good, safe jobs with access to unions.
  2. Building the power of workers to fight inequality.
  3. Investing in Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities.
  4. Strengthening and healing the nation-to-nation relationship with sovereign Native Nations.
  5. Combating environmental injustice and ensuring healthy lives for all.
  6. Averting climate and environmental catastrophe.
  7. Ensuring fairness for workers and communities affected by economic transitions.
  8. Reinvesting in public institutions that enable workers and communities to thrive.

Read more on each of the pillars here and take action to ask your Representative to support it.
