The Breathe Act
The BREATHE Act offers a radical reimagining of public safety, community care, and how we spend money as a society with four simple idea:
- Divest federal resources from incarceration and policing.
- Invest in new, non-punitive, non-carceral approaches to community safety that lead states to shrink their criminal-legal systems and center the protection of Black lives—including Black mothers, Black trans people, and Black women.
- Allocate new money to build healthy, sustainable, and equitable communities.
- Hold political leaders to their promises and enhance the self-determination of all Black communities.
The Thrive Agenda
The Thrive Agenda Stands for: Transform, Heal, and Renew by Investing in a Vibrant Economy. It’s an 8 pillar program to address the inequality and racism the COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare and create millions of jobs for a just, healthy, and equitable society.Read more about the Thrive Agenda
Green New Deal
The Green New Deal is a congressional resolution to mobilize every aspect of American society to 100% clean and renewable energy, guarantee living-wage jobs for anyone who needs one, and a just transition for both workers and frontline communities—all in the next 10 years.
Cancel Rent and Deportations
Everyone deserves a roof over their heads and a home to feel safe in. But Covid, on top of the past decades of negative economic and immigration policies that preceded the pandemic, is putting more and more of us at risk of losing the place we call home.
When President-elect Biden prepares to move into his new home on January 20th, millions of renters, homeowners and immigrants are teetering on the edge of being evicted, foreclosed on, or deported.
We need swift executive action to put a moratorium on evictions, utility shut-offs, and immigration enforcement that leads to deportation and removal.Join the Eviction & Deportation Defense Training Series

Amir Khadar is a Sierra Leonean-American artist and educator from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their main mediums are digital art, writing, and fiber art. Regardless of the outlet, their practice has always been grounded through afro-futurism, black beauty, black femme liberation and reclaiming ancestral practices.
Their illustration depicts two happy Black femmes holding hands in a luscious landscape. One is carrying a baby, and the other a potted plant. Their hand holding emphasizes the importance of relationship building and joy in organizing around liberation.
