- Congress must take a stand against Israeli settlements in Palestinian territories
- Legislators should not take free trips from pro-Israel lobbyists and then vote on bills those lobbyists support
- Pass the People’s Budget: fund schools, transit, jobs, housing, environment; cut the bloated military
- No to the Trump/ Ryan Tax Cuts for Millionaires, Billionaires and Wealthy Corporations
- $15 an hour minimum wage; family medical leave; tax millionaires to pay for transit and schools
We will hear from leaders of each campaign about the goals, problems, and what you can practically do to help. For the second half of the time we will break down into four small groups that will go deeper into each campaign.
