Together we can:

Raise the minimum wage

Raise the minimum wage to ensure decent pay for all Chicago workers and make sure that wealthy corporations do not profit off of poverty wages.

Ensure that our children get the education they deserve

We need our tax dollars to fund public schools, not banks and corporations. We need to support parents, students, and educators and stop corporations from stealing Chicago's future.

Make the rich pay their fair share of taxes

We need a fair tax system that closes the corporate loopholes and stops the sweetheart tax deals for the super rich.

Pass budgets that provide the services our communities need

We need budgets that prioritize public services and youth investment that supports mental health clinics, libraries, and restorative justice.

Create affordable housing

Get city commitment to creating and preserving affordable housing in the next 5-year plan that serves the needs of residents throughout Chicago, not just homes for the wealthy.
