Hope

Is there any hope that things will change for the better as a result of the pandemic? This article explains real proposals and bills in Congress that would bring greater equality and justice to the American people and protections for the planet.

We are all struggling in this time of stay-at-home orders, quarantine, and other new experiences, that makes us aware of who is protected and who is not.

What if we could imagine and implement new systems that benefit everyone?

As we listen to the news, we stand somewhere between fear and hope. By staying tuned in and connected, we do not distance ourselves from the suffering and real needs of others. Instead, we care for those closest to us and lean into this new age where new systems are forming.

I went out on the Internet and found some signs of hope. With increased awareness, organizing and advocacy, we could see changes in the social and economic policies in our country and around the world.

  1. Universal health care 
  2. Tuition-free College
  3. Universal Basic Income 
  4. Housing for all
  5. Protecting the planet

Let’s keep learning and using our voices. We can have guaranteed access to affordable housing, health care, education, and child care. We can have green jobs with living wages and a universal basic income. We can address the climate crisis. We must call for new public policies that serve everyone and transform our society.  Tell your family and friends. Find out where your elected officials stand on these innovative ideas.

Now is the time. Change is possible.
