      A chance to live the American Dream for all.
      Every person will have equal opportunity
      to achieve economic success, sustainability, and financial security.

    • Education


      A free, high-quality, public education for all.
      Every child will receive a free, high quality, equitably-funded, public pre-K and K-12 education followed by diverse opportunities for accessible, affordable vocational or university education.

    • Health


      Health equality for all. Americans including a healthy life and high-quality health care.
      Everyone will have equal access to affordable,
      high-quality health care, and racially disparate health outcomes will end.

    • Public Safety and Criminal Justice


      Equitable dispensation of justice for all. Disproportionate incarceration, racially motivated policing strategies, and racially biased,discriminatory, and mandatory minimum
      sentencing will end. Incarceration will be greatly reduced and communities will be safer. The death penalty will be abolished at the state and federal
      level, as well as in the military.
    • Voting Rights and Political Representation
      Protect and enhance voting rights and fair representation. Every American will have free, open, equal, and protected access to the vote and fair representation at all levels of the political process.
      By protecting democracy, enhancing equity, and increasing democratic participation and civic engagement, African Americans will be
      proportionally elected to political office.
