Statement of Our Revolution Board of Directors

STAND UP! FIGHT BACK!

The board of Our Revolution met together in Washington, DC and are committed to the following:

All for one, one for all!  Attacks on the rights of immigrants, people of color, indigenous nations, LGBTQ communities, working class or religious minorities will be met by resistance and solidarity by our movement.

We need an economy that works for all.  We will work for economic justice and against the oligopoly that controls so much and expects even more.  Big money out of politics and expanding voting rights are essential to our democracy. Additionally, we support a foreign policy that works towards peace, advocates for justice, and supports the human rights of all. 

We resist the Dakota Access Pipeline.  DAPL crushes the lives of our Native sisters and brothers, farmers in Iowa, our water and the earth itself.  Our commitment to tribal sovereignty, property rights and stopping climate change demands immediate action.

We will fight for democracy and an end to corporate and big money influence in the Democratic Party.  We endorse Keith Ellison for Party Chair.

Our organizing work will continue to move forward at the state and local levels as well as nationally.  As Tip O'Neill said, "all politics is local." When we are strong at both the local and national levels, we push forward a progressive agenda, and fight against the forces that dismiss the concerns of the working class.


It’s time to warrior up!

See you on the front lines!
