We Believe We Have a Responsibility to Each Other
“We feel that a strong and prosperous society requires that everyone contribute. Without shared responsibility and resources (taxes) there would be no public education and health systems, safe communities, secure retirements, reliable transportation systems, breakthrough research for medical cures, clean renewable energy, and an economic security system to protect and boost struggling families. We call on our leaders, at every level of government, to recognize that we all prosper when these fundamental public investments have the resources they need, and that those with the most, having benefitted the most, should contribute the most.” – TaxMarch17
Our Commitment is for a Just Economy
“We believe that America is strongest when everyone has the opportunity to succeed. But for generations, we have placed barriers to success in many communities, especially in communities of color, for women, for people with disabilities, for immigrants, and in the LGBTQ community. We believe we must all grapple with and repair the economic injustices of the past. We call on our leaders to build an equitable and accessible economy, one in which all members of our communities can participate fully, and enjoy the fruits of our contributions to society.” – TaxMarch17
