BLACK AGENDA 2020
is a policy platform that empowers Black communities to educate and challenge elected officials, policymakers, and legislators to take positions that are beneficial to our communities.
BLACK AGENDA 2020
For too long, people in power have conspired to rig the game, forcing Black people to work twice as hard to barely get half as far in America. We are falling further behind in health and wealth, safety and well-being.
Black people can and will take our power back by:
1) Agreeing on the things we want.
2) Mobilizing our communities around those things.
3) Voting our agenda.
4) Holding decision makers accountable to our needs and priorities.
Our future can and must be different. Black communities deserve and demand thoughtful, visionary poolicies and practices that make us powerful in every aspect of our lives.
Black Agenda 2020 works to make Black people powerful
in every aspect of our lives, including:
By removing policies that lock us out of good jobs and investing in the health and wealth of our communities
By confronting those who conspire to steal our votes and finally building the democracy that is promised to us all
By challenging the people and practices that leave us sick and dying younger and delivering the care we need to live long and live well
By rejecting the toxic culture of white nationalism by calling it out at every opportunity and in front of every audience
By acting on the climate crisis as a national priority before more of our communities are hit first and worst by disasters
By ending the use of incarceration to solve the problems of migration, poverty, and disinvestment and returning millions of us back to our families and communities”
