Everyone’s Economy: 25 Policies to Lift Up Working People

Everyone’s Economy includes 25 policies—from providing universal childcare to protecting consumers from high-interest debt, from promoting climate equity to ending the criminalization of poverty—that contribute to a race-forward, populist agenda.

This briefing book has been developed in an ongoing collaboration with grassroots organizations across the country. Each policy section briefly details the problem, summarizes national polling on the issue, and outlines a policy solution, including references to bills currently before Congress. Each section also includes messaging guidance for talking about the policy with the public, examples of how a similar policy has worked at the state or local level or would work according to studies, and links to further resources.

Everyone’s America: State Policies for an Equal Say in Our Democracy and an Equal Chance in Our Economy

With national politics tangled in scandal and stalemate, this work at the state level is more vital than ever. Not only can real progressive policies take shape on the state level, they can take root and blossom into national action in the future. In Everyone’s America: State Policies for an Equal Say in Our Democracy and an Equal Chance in Our Economy, we offer an inclusive, race-forward, working-class platform.

Everyone’s America lays out 26 policies—from raising job standards to protecting consumers from high-interest debt, from modernizing voter registration and making it more inclusive to shifting power from wealthy donors to working people—that contribute to a race-forward, populist agenda and empower all Americans to participate more fully in our democracy. Similarly to the Federal Book, Everyone's America lays out detailed policy proposals combined with messaging guidance and links to further resources.
