Next week on Election Day, November 8th, is our chance to vote for politicians who will fight for economic justice for working people, our families, and our communities. So many critical issues are on the line. We must protect our reproductive freedom, right to vote, our families, and our environment.
We know that most people support common-sense policies like paid leave, affordable childcare, access to reproductive healthcare, and affordable housing. When we elect politicians who reflect our values at the national, state, and local level we will continue to move towards a future where working women and people of color not only survive but thrive.
