BUILD A MOVEMENT 2020
Provisional Platform, July 2019
For too long the American public has been complacent in dealing with the most dire challenges that face our society and our World. Build A Movement 2020 is a newly forming political movement of justice-hearted people who are joining forces together, in a fusion of solidarity. We are committed to connecting local, national and global movements on a scale that has never been seen before, so we can hold the next U.S. government accountable for bold and transformative action. We are committed to ensuring the survival of the human species. We are committed to ensuring the next U.S. President and Congress we elect in 2020 will usher in a more just and peaceful world. Movements we back so far include:
CLIMATE RESTORATION and TRANSITION TO 100% CLEAN RENEWABLE ENERGY
We call for the passage of comprehensive legislation at the federal, state and local levels to rapidly accelerate climate restoration and the rapid transition to 100% clean and renewable energy. In doing so, we can assist in ensuring our planet is habitable for future generations and assist in creating jobs, ending poverty, upgrading infrastructure, and generating economic opportunity.
CLIMATE SMART – SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
We call for bold action in support of the “Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs) and the “Paris Climate Accord” — the world’s ambitious agendas for achieving social, economic, environmental, gender and racial justice by 2030. We call for bold action to rapidly accelerate climate-smart, sustainable development in our homes, communities, institutions, and our world, creating better lives for everyone.
END CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE AND INCEST
We call on all parents, families, guardians, teachers, coaches, clergy, and leaders in society, to break the code of silence regarding sexual abuse and incest. We call on these individuals to create safe spaces for survivors and to assist them in revealing as well as healing from their hidden trauma. Together, we will create a global and inclusive healing movement.
GENDER EQUALITY, UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE, AND THE END OF AIDS
We call for gender equality, mental health programs, universal health care programs of prevention, and care for all Americans. Furthermore, we call for the support of global efforts to end HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and other infectious disease epidemics. We call for all this while building a global movement that accelerates action toward universal health care and protection of our planetary health.
RESTORE OUR DEMOCRACY
We call for major reforms of our political system to ensure fairness, freedom, and justice for all. We call for innovative solutions that can be deployed in order to address low voter turnout, gerrymandering, and campaign finance rules. Additionally, we also call for the deployment of solutions that will assist in the combating of firearms violence, racially-biased voter suppression, and mass incarceration. We will “Build a Movement 2020” to restore our government being run “by the people, for the people,” instead of “by the greedy, for the greedy.” Let’s create America 2.0.
