- Economic Justice
Spring Lobby Weekend
March 18-21, 2017 in Washington, DC
For the first time in a generation, we have an opportunity to enact concrete policies that would begin to construct an economic system that benefits all.
The U.S. is a wealthy nation, yet our economic system is stacked against the majority of people in this country.
The U.S. is a wealthy nation, yet our economic system is stacked against the majority of people in this country, particularly people living in poverty, communities of color, and recent immigrants.
Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle are committed to finding solutions to bridge the inequality gap - but they need to hear from grassroots advocates like you about why they need to take action now.
This year, we'll be dismantling income inequality.
Come to Spring Lobby Weekend and urge Congress to:
- Support a jobs program for the 21st century.
- Modernize our unemployment system for today's workforce.
- Stop taxing single people and people under 25 into poverty.
