A People's Bailout and a Just Recovery from COVID-19

People’s Action is one of the original sponsors of the People’s Bailout principles, which include:

  • Health is the top priority, for all people, with no exceptions
  • Economic relief must be provided directly to the people
  • Rescue workers, communities and small business owners, not corporate executives
  • Make a down payment on a regenerative economy while preventing future crises
  • Protect our democratic process while protecting each other.

We also urge our elected officials to adhere to the following additional principles:

  • Prioritize women, Black, brown, indigenous, undocumented, LGBTQ+, and low-income people, the elderly, people with disabilities, and communities who are hurt first and worst.
  • Invest in the global cooperation we need to address the global pandemic
