Our platform

 

Public Bank

Form a public bank to refinance student loans; bank the cannabis industry and invest in communities ravaged by the racist War on Drugs; lend to small businesses; and finance new affordable housing.

 

Green investment policies

Align the City’s portfolio with environmentally responsible investments by adhering to ESG investment practices and fighting to make Chicago the municipal launching point of the Green New Deal.

Income Inequality

Establish an Office of Economic Empowerment to address, reform, and educate on the issues that are most central to economic stability: housing, debt, and employment among them.

Independent watchdog

Reestablish the Office of Treasurer as a sound check on the mayor and City Council while scrutinizing investment decisions and raising red flags about clout-heavy deals that hurt the long-term financial strength of our pension funds.
