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
