We demand a Colorado where our economy and democracy work for all of us, not just the wealthy few!
We will fight for:
- The freedom to form a union without interference or fear of retaliation
- Higher Wages
- Racial Justice
- Immigrant Justice
- Affordable, Quality Health Care
- Affordable Housing We will fight for policies that address the rising cost of housing by raising wages and lowering costs. Working families can afford their housing in safe, thriving communities, without the fear of being forced to move because of soaring rents and housing prices.
- A Clean Environment – We will fight for policies that transition Colorado to clean energy, with union jobs and support for impacted workers and communities. For all of us to thrive, the planet must thrive. We demand a just transition to an economy where working families and our environment thrive in tandem, with clean energy powered by good union jobs, and adequate support for displaced workers and impacted communities.
The Working People’s Platform is a project of SEIU Local 105, a union of over 7,000 Coloradans who work in healthcare and building services. Local 105 members and community advocates created a set of priorities based on our values and the challenges facing working people across Colorado. We are building an inclusive movement in support of these priorities, so please sign on today!
Candidates in Colorado are being asked to stand up for working people by endorsing the platform. All around the state, people are raising their voices to demand that our government and our economy work for all of us, not just the very wealthy and big corporations.
