We know what we need to do to get our country back on track: Climate, Jobs, and Justice.

It’s time to make sure the new Congress and President implement the solutions necessary to solve the historic crises our country faces. We expect action that’s responsive to the needs of our communities—Black communities, Indigenous communities, communities of color, working class communities, young people, those who have been excluded from economic opportunity in the past, and those who want to be part of a more just, sustainable, thriving future. We demand a recovery that works for all of us. 

 

THRIVE is a blueprint for the future that tackles the multiple crises we face - economic inequality, racism and climate change - with a plan to create 15 million dignified jobs for millions of workers and support a better life for the millions more who remain vulnerable in this pivotal moment. We have a once-in-a-generation chance to go big and bold, no excuses and no exceptions.

 

 

The THRIVE (Transform, Heal, and Renew by Investing in a Vibrant Economy) Act is a transformational, $10 trillion, 10-year economic recovery and infrastructure package that would put 15 million people to work in good, union, family-sustaining jobs, cuts climate pollution in half by 2030, and advances racial, Indigenous, gender, environmental, and economic justice.

 

This is just the beginning of our push for a country that cares for all of us.

Call your member of Congress and urge them to support the Thrive Act:

US Congressional Switchboard (which can direct you to both Representatives in the House or the Senate): 202-224-3121

Talking Points:

The THRIVE (Transform, Heal, and Renew by Investing in a Vibrant Economy) Agenda/Act is a bold vision for the future centering around eight key pillars:

  • Creating millions of good, safe jobs with access to unions;

  • Building the power of workers to fight inequality;

  • Investing in Black, Brown, and Indigenous communities;

  • Strengthening and healing the nation-to-nation relationship with sovereign Native Nations;

  • Combating environmental injustice and ensuring healthy lives for all;

  • Averting climate and environmental catastrophe;

  • Ensuring fairness for workers and communities affected by economic transitions; and

  • Reinvesting in public institutions that enable workers and communities to THRIVE.

 

Passing the THRIVE Act would set our country (and our planet) on a better, greener, more equitable path for the future.

Why should we advocate for a Thrive agenda?
