Discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people in our communities persists in spite of recent advances in equality.
For more than 20 years, there has been an organized effort on the part of very wealthy education “reformers” to privatize public schools by promoting charter schools and vouchers. Many of these reformers claim that charter schools and vouchers provide parents with a “choice” that charter schools provide a better education than their public counterparts. The research is clear in that there is no evidence charter schools, in the aggregate, provide better education than public schools. Conversely, there is considerable evidence that children attending voucher schools do worse than those attending public schools.
All across the country families are facing an affordable housing crisis as millions of Americans struggle to afford homeownership. There is not a single state in the country where a person working full-time at the federal minimum wage can afford a two-bedroom apartment at the local fair-market rent.
There is no state law forcing employers to offer paid time off to workers who have given birth or adopted new children. Most workers must take unpaid time off or utilize vacation days, short-term disability and other paid leave time when they welcome a new child into their family. Most workers in the United States are protected by the federal Family and Medical Leave Act which allows parents to take up to 12-weeks off without fear of losing their jobs. But this law only promises unpaid leave and exempts small businesses with less than 50 employees. No one should face the impossible choice of either caring for their health or keeping their paycheck or job.
We believe that healthcare should be a right for all citizens and not a privilege. But with healthcare under assault, state’s progressive infrastructure must work overtime to defend healthcare and also seek to expand and improve it where possible.
The Krimson Political Action Council was established as a change agent that champions public policies that promote equitable outcome for the communities where we live and serve. While increasing diversity from a variety of backgrounds, it is critical that we see expansion to our underserved communities with regards to jobs, environmental justice and protection for all of our communities.
