-- building power for the 2017 statewide elections;
-- combatting intolerance;
-- defending immigrant rights;
-- changing inequitable criminal justice laws and improving public safety;
-- increasing affordable housing;
-- defending and increasing funding to ensure a high-quality public education for all;
-- standing up for workers' rights.
