Progressive revenue sources that drive down pollution: Ensure that corporations and the very wealthy who’ve done well in Washington do right by Washington.
Climate-Resilient Investments: Invest in building a clean and resilient economy to support healthy and prosperous communities.
Clean & Just Approaches: Enact policies to reduce pollution, increase climate protection, strengthen the power and voices of workers, create good jobs with protected collective bargaining rights, and address structural inequalities.
