It’s time to take back our economy

It’s another day in Trump’s America—and another day to stand up for what’s right. Get the facts to fight back.

What will you do to help working people?

That’s the question we want progressive leaders to answer. So, we’re asking it.

Under Trump, corporate profits are skyrocketing, health care costs are increasing, and wages are stagnant. We need leaders with solutions to help everyday Americans.

Tomorrow, April 27, progressive leaders are joining CAP Action and SEIU in Las Vegas for a #WorkersForum, because our economy should work for everyone—not just the rich and powerful.

Joining us: Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, former HUD Secretary Julian Castro, former Gov. John Hickenlooper, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

You can join us, too! Head to on Saturday, April 27, at 1 p.m. EST to watch the livestream, and share the link on Facebook and Twitter so your friends can, too.

Here are some of the biggest issues we want to hear these progressive leaders talk about:

  • Corporate profits vs. wages: Under Trump, corporations and the wealthy are getting massive tax breaks while working people are struggling to keep up. We want to hear what we can do to increase wages.
  • Health care: The Affordable Care Act expanded coverage and protections to millions of Americans. Yet Republican attempts to repeal the law threaten health care for millions. At the #WorkersForum, we’ll hear how progressive leaders plan to expand coverage and bring down costs.
  • Money in politics: We should be able to trust elected officials to work for us—not the corporations writing them checks. How will progressive leaders make sure that elected officials are working to improve the lives of all people, not just the wealthy?
  • Union access: Unions are vital to cementing worker protections, addressing income inequality, and increasing wages for everyone. How will progressive leaders fight back against the constant attacks on unions from wealthy interests?
