Priorities for Progress in 2021
February 17, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us for “Priorities for Progress in 2021: Movement Organizations Propose Bold Solutions for a Nation in Crisis.” This hour-long virtual briefing will feature presentations by the Progressive Governance Project, a gathering of over 70 organizations from across the progressive movement, including grassroots organizations, labor unions, and policy think tanks. The Progressive Governance Project developed 8 policy agendas highlighting top legislative and administrative priorities on climate, democracy, economic justice, foreign policy, healthcare, immigration, reproductive rights, health, and justice, and worker power. These progressive policy agendas outline actions necessary for both the 117th Congress and the Biden administration in order to address this moment of crisis.
