President-elect Biden has made clear from the moment he was elected that he plans to oversee a neoliberal, racist, business-as-usual agenda during his term. From his appointment of corporate lobbyists like Tom Vilsack, a dairy/ago-industry exec, to vehemently underscoring how he will not use executive action to pass a progressive agenda, it’s clear that Biden is more interested in punching left than providing a way forward to the millions of people struggling right now.

But there’s not room for a honeymoon period for Biden. If we let this do-nothing agenda go unchallenged, we can be certain we will be facing a Trump 2.0 situation in four years, no matter how much the ruling establishment plays “resistance” now amidst the backdrop of public outrage at right-wing attacks.

That’s why it’s vital the left comes together on Day 1 of Biden’s administration to get organized to build an anti-racist working-class alternative. We demand:

  • COVID Relief Now! $2000/month & Medicare for All
  • A Green New Deal & Federal Jobs Guarantee
  • Defund the Police & Reinvest in BIPOC Communities!
  • End Deportations & Abolish ICE!
  • Cancel ALL Student Debt
  • Abolish the Electoral College; End Gerrymandering; Votes for the Incarcerated!
  • No Racist Patriot Act 2.0
  • Protect Workers’ Rights: Pass the PRO Act

Bring your own sign or we’ll have plenty on hand!
