For the office of
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
CRGE is pleased to endorse
Throughout his political career, Bernie Sanders has fought tirelessly to advance his visionary national agenda for universal equity, opportunity, and justice. With the support of grassroots movements, Sanders has played an instrumental role in propelling a progressive shift within the Democratic party towards more fair and inclusive federal policies, including Medicare for All, tuition-free college, universal childcare, and living wage jobs.
As a 2020 presidential candidate, Sanders has put forth an ambitious policy platform to counter the nation’s staggering economic inequality and racial injustice. He offers voters a comprehensive policy roadmap for transformational economic redistribution, which would ensure that the nation’s wealthiest corporations and individuals pay their fair share, and promote robust public investment in universal healthcare, education, housing, and economic security programs. By countering the unjust capitalist systems that underpin persistent racial wealth and opportunity gaps in the U.S., Sanders’ policies would have resoundingly positive implications for communities of color across the country. Moreover, Sanders has issued a compelling plan to reverse the nation’s inhumane and racially targeted system of law enforcement through assertive police accountability and sentencing reform measures.
Sanders’ powerful campaign message of equity and justice has galvanized a broad base of grassroots support among Black voters in recent months. This steadily growing popularity in the national polls distinguishes Sanders from other progressive primary contenders, as the most competitive candidate to take on neoliberal Democratic frontrunners - such as Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg - in the primary race, and to unseat President Trump in the general election.
