Our Work

Our Progressive agenda and the call for Peace is at the center of Democratic politics this election year. And, we have a chance to tip the scales state by state on key ballot measures to secure reproductive rights and fight back against fossil fuels.

It’s our job to mobilize our movement to make a difference. That’s why it’s so critical for Our Revolution to keep up the call for Peace, Medicare for All, labor power, social justice — and all of our policy priorities this election year.

We’re proud to partner with allies like Bernie, Ro Khanna, Pramila Jayapal as they champion legislation to take on Big Pharma, end medical debt, and more at the federal level. But, Our Revolution has also helped elect hundreds of progressives down ballot, and they’re working with our organizers to move the needle on things like wages, housing, and democracy measures at the state and local level, too.

Our Platform

Our Revolution’s 2023 Platform was created with the democratic input of members and volunteers around the country. 

These are just some of the top issues they identified for the coming year, though we continue to organize nationally and at the chapter level to break up corporate power, make housing affordable, stem gun violence, tax the rich, and more.

Defend Democracy

From the right-wing attacks on democracy to the corrosive influence of big money in politics, the few cannot be allowed to silence the many. We know that our issues are winning issues in a fair fight. We must “fix or nix” the filibuster, defend voting rights, push back against far right authoritarianism, and hold our elected officials accountable to the people – not wealthy campaign contributors. 

Medicare for All & Medical Debt

We are advancing the fight for a Medicare for All single-payer system that guarantees healthcare as a human right in America. We are working to grow cosponsors at the federal level, supporting universal healthcare state by state, and passing local M4A resolutions to build momentum. We must also support efforts to expand Medicare coverage, lower the Medicare age (eventually to 0), cut drug prices; and fend off Medicare privatization!

Climate Action/End Fossil Fuels

With our planet in crisis, our government cannot continue to subsidize environmental destruction and put the health of citizens and vulnerable communities at risk. It’s past time to take climate action, shift to renewable energy and energy efficiency, end taxpayer handouts to Big Oil, and stop drilling on federal lands – for a start.

Living Wage and a Union

Vast inequality and concentrated corporate power are destabilizing our democracy and economy. It’s time to use the levers of government power to raise wages, end sub-minimum wages like those received by tipped employees, extend paid family and medical leave, protect workers’ right to organize, and take on union busters. 

Criminal Justice Reform

Even though our adversaries will attempt to weaponize our grassroots efforts to transform the criminal justice system against us, we know we must fight for reform. That’s why we’re endorsing candidates who will work with us to end qualified immunity, fight for bail reform, legalize marijuana, and more.

Protect Reproductive Rights

With the help of rightwing courts and justices, the right-wing is turning back the clock on women’s rights. The right to choose is a matter of life and death and an issue of privacy and bodily autonomy. Congress must codify Roe v. Wade to protect this critical constitutional right.
