THE DONE WAITING PLATFORM
It's a platform with a backbone.
All endorsed candidates must align with our core platform and sign our Progressive Solidarity Pledge (shown below)
GREEN NEW DEAL
We need to address climate change now. Lack of meaningful regulation and corporate greed has put us all in danger. In order to address the problem, we must reach environmental justice without leaving anyone behind.
The corporate class has direct influence over our democracy. Instead of being allegiant to their constituency, representatives are constantly acting in the interests of the richest in our nation. Corporate donations and lobbying must end right now.
TUITION & DEBT free EDUCATION
Our generation is being financially punished and saddled with extreme student debt for pursuing an education. This not only hurts an individual's upwards mobility, but the entire economy. College for all now.
MEDICARE FOR ALL
Our current system assumes that those who deserve treatment are those who have the money to pay for it. Our infrastructure constantly puts profit over people. This is why we need single-payer health care now.
The United States is built on the methodical oppression of people of color. We must acknowledge and confront this history. In order to address racial inequality in our policing, education, medical, housing, and labor systems, we need sweeping structural reform.
Progressive Solidarity Pledge
Once in office, I pledge to always support candidates and policies that embody the progressive values in Done Waiting's platform, especially the values of respect and equality for all, in order to catalyze institutional change in this country. I will not support candidates that are antithetical or noncommittal to this cause, even if this will be inconvenient or have consequences with my colleagues.
It is essential to our organization that we see our candidates supporting other progressives and trying to advance the movement. They must not support corporate democrats over progressives because they are loyal to corporations, not their constituency.
If our organization sees that a Done Waiting endorsed candidate has broken our Progressive Solidarity Pledge, we will publicly rescind our endorsement and possibly mobilize resources against your candidacy. Our organization will be monitoring Progressives in office as well as candidates they have endorsed.
