  2. Support economic mobility for working class people through equitable tax, health care and education policies.
  3. Address the nation’s affordable housing crisis by increasing access to affordable homeownership and rental housing.
  4. Strengthen neighborhoods through place-based investments that advance equitable economic opportunity and preserve cultural integrity.
  5. Invest in public transportation infrastructure that connects workers to centers of employment and health care resources.
  6. Promote a vibrant and fair financial services marketplace by managing systemic risk, ensuring strong consumer financial protections, and promoting diversity in institutional governance.
  7. Catalyze small business growth by increasing access to capital and business development services for underserved small business owners & entrepreneurs.
  8. Prepare workers to succeed in a changing economy with relevant workforce development strategies and enforcement of workplace safety regulations.
  9. Invest in Puerto Rico with a Marshall Plan-like investment in housing, economic development, and local government capacity building.
