1/ Will you join me for a thread of reflection as I head to Philadelphia on Amtrak to speak about a progressive vision for the future at #NetrootsNation? #NN19

The governing agenda of our nation ought to be:


Here’s why #EndPoverty is also an organizing vision...
2/ #EndPoverty means:

Poverty as it's experienced by the nearly 8 out of 10 Americans who live paycheck to paycheck, who are one "shit happens" life experience away from ruin
3/ Poverty happens because wages are too low & life's basic needs like health care are too expensive. Therefore, #EndPoverty, means a living wage of $20 per hour as a federal minimum wage, a big expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit and... #MedicareForAll #EndPoverty
4/ Poverty happens because the rules of our economic system are infected with structural racism and misogyny; therefore, we need to re-write the rules so that everyone is treated equally and those who perpetuate prejudice face proportionate consequences. #EndPoverty #NN19
5/ To #EndPoverty, we need as a nation to invest in new industries that create millions of new jobs directed toward doing big things -- the biggest thing we need to do is upgrade our nation's infrastructure to be carbon neutral. That's why #EndPoverty requires a #GreenNewDeal
6/ Governing our nation to #EndPoverty requires that we harness our culture toward understanding that America's middle class is dead and its spirit has been replaced by a Poverty Crisis. That's why as a first step to #EndPoverty, we must say, write, shout, repeat: #EndPoverty
7/ Today is my 40th birthday and my wish is that every who reads this thread do their own tweet about what #EndPoverty means to you...and if you’d sign up, donate what you can and help us build our fight to #EndPoverty at WorkingHero.org, that’d be great too!
8/ And here’s the start to culture change! We made #EndPoverty trend today! Thank you #NetrootsNation #NN19!
