Progressive leaders for Glasson
Whereas we are committed to pursuing “transformative reforms,” which substantially shift power away from private corporations and capitalists, including by strengthening labor unions, taking steps toward the decommodification of healthcare, holding corporations responsible for their environmental and social harms, and requiring a liveable minimum wage;
Whereas we recognize that the pursuit of such reforms requires the election of legislators and executives to our government, which are committed to bold, progressive change;
Whereas Courtney Rowe supports a federal, single-payer, universal healthcare plan;
Whereas she supports campaign finance reform and publicly funded elections;
Whereas she opposes DAPL and environmentally disastrous efforts to expand fossil fuel extraction and consumption;
Whereas she pledges to not take any PAC money, she does not have a Super PAC, and her campaign is funded by individual contributions;
Whereas she supports instituting a minimum wage of $15 per hour;
Whereas she promises to hold agriculture corporations, especially hog confinement operations, accountable for water quality and water restoration;
Whereas we seek to amplify our legislative and electoral goals and build momentum by joining with other organizations and mass movements;
