About Us

Three tier criminal justice reform: Police, Judicial, and Legislative. Police and Legislative- Reduce officer trigger happy induced fear of the stresses that come with their job. These poorly trained cops need to have an increase in conflict de-escalation tactics training. Decrease the amount of "Fear Based Training" that is being schooled to officers. Require liability insurance for officers to maintain officer status to hold them accountable for their actions. This will afford victims of police brutality or police misconduct monetary reparations, instead of tax payer money. End Qualified Immunity. Vet the deals signed by the Police Unions and the police department to ensure police employment history integrity. New age police suits and tools designed to deescalate the situation or immobilize (BolaWrap etc..) a citizen with the least amount of force necessary, and provide protection to the police officer. Create a Community Based Civilian branch of the federal government called the League of Justice to monitor, survey, and vet police officers to ensure citizen protection from oppression/police misconduct.

Judicial- End bails bond system for non violent crimes that do not pose a immediate threat to the public. Blind Jury Trials to decrease the risk of bias in court cases and ensure facts are clearly heard. Guarantee tuition and debt-free for two years of public colleges, universities, HBCUs, Minority Serving Institutions and trade-schools. Cancel all student loan debt for the some 45 million Americans who owe about $1.6 trillion and place a cap on student loan interest rates going forward at 1.88 percent. Invest $1.3 billion every year in private, non-profit historically black colleges and universities and minority-serving institutions End equity gaps in higher education attainment. And ensure students are able to cover non-tuition costs of attending school by: expanding Pell Grants to cover non-tuition and fee costs, tripling funding for the Work-Study Program, and more. Details Just 30 years ago, tuition and fees at a public, four-year university totaled $3,360 per year in today’s dollars. That same degree today costs more than $10,000 per year in tuition and fees and more than $21,000 per year including room and board. Meanwhile, median hourly wages for college graduates have risen by less than $1 since 2001, when adjusted for inflation. The promise of higher pay has not materialized for recent college graduates, who have been taking out more and more in student loans to keep up with the skyrocketing cost of tuition. This has led to a generation of young people unable to start families, buy homes, and follow their dreams. America has failed a generation of young people. You are not truly free when you graduate college with hundreds of thousands of dollars in student debt. You are not truly free when you cannot pursue your dream of becoming a teacher, environmentalist, journalist or nurse because you cannot make enough money to cover your monthly student loan payments. And you are not truly free when the vast majority of good-paying jobs require a degree that requires taking out tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt to obtain. Lets end the racial and class disparities that persist throughout higher education. We will close these gaps and ensure all Americans, no matter their race, income, zip code, or immigration status receive a high quality education. We can guarantee the right to a good, public education for all – from childcare and pre-kindergarten through college – we must free generations of Americans from the outrageous burden of student loans by canceling all existing student debt. Every young person, regardless of their family income, the color of their skin, disability, or immigration status should have the opportunity to attend college.

Slashing Drug Prices In the United States, we pay the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. This year alone the price of major prescription drugs have increased more than five times the rate of inflation with price hikes as high as 875 percent. While about one out of five Americans cannot afford to pay for the medicine prescribed by their doctors,10 big drug companies made $69 billion in profits last year and the top 25 CEOs in the pharmaceutical industry received $440 million in compensation in 2017. Seniors take an average of 4.5 drugs every month. For a senior taking brand name medications, the yearly price of those medications was more than $30,000 in 2017, more than most seniors’ annual income. Nearly a quarter of seniors with prescriptions have a hard time affording their medicine. Under Medicare for All, we must stop the pharmaceutical industry from ripping off seniors by making sure that no one in America pays over $200 a year for the medicine they need by capping what Americans pay for prescription drugs. This is exactly what exists in countries like the United Kingdom, Sweden and New Zealand. Under this plan, seniors will never experience another donut hole where they are forced to pay thousands of dollars for the life-saving medicine they need. We can handle the pharmaceutical industry by: Requiring Medicare to negotiate lower drug prices, (Not Pharmacy Benefit Managers PBM) while maintaining access to all FDA-approved medications. Cut drug prices by 50% by making sure the U.S. pays no more for prescription drugs than other major countries. Break up patents like insulin so price can be more competitive. Allow patients, pharmacists and wholesalers to purchase lower-cost drugs from Canada and other countries. Exercise federal march-in rights to manufacture drugs produced at taxpayer expense. Require companies to disclose the costs of clinical drug trials. Increase the amount of free hospital services Non-profit and for-profit hospitals have to provide.

 Expanding Social Security

Use the military to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure. The military is the most well equipped and financed.

Gas Prices are at record highs! Our dependency on oil and fossil fuels has caused the most global harm and waste of money. World Wars are of question just from the supply chains of it. Our planet is suffocating more and more each year. It's time our infrastructure reflects the future of green energy and nuclear power. Bullet trains and hyper loops. There is so much land in the United States for housing, and this technology can help the commute from great distances easier.
