Our Coalition

New England faces a series of overlapping crises: mass unemployment, racial injustice, the coronavirus pandemic, and climate change. These crises are deeply connected. We need a powerful, grassroots movement to tackle all four of them simultaneously, and reimagine New England from the ground up. We’re building local, grassroots power across the region to win a Jobs Guarantee, universal healthcare, affordable housing, racial justice, and bold climate action.
