Biden's Domestic Agenda Priorities for Progressive Policies

🚨 TOMORROW 🚨

The incoming #BidenHarris administration will face a multitude of urgent crises at home: the ongoing #covid19 #pandemic, an economic #recession, an urgent call for racial justice as well as #climatechange.

As daunting as that seems, each crisis also presents an opportunity for reforms that have been long overdue. What #progressive #domesticpolicy initiatives should the new administration address first?

Join us to discuss these questions on our facebook live tomorrow!

With 190 Million Instagram followers, Kim Kardashian West is probably one of the most famous people in the #US - if not in the world!

She has recently used that fame to advocate for #socialjustice causes. In 2018, she met with #DonaldTrump to discuss #prisonreform.

How seriously should we take her as a political actor?

What does the 2020 U.S. election mean for social democracy?

"The #JoeBiden win was welcomed in the #UnitedStates and around the world, but the difficult part will be governing. For #socialdemocrats it is an open question whether the incoming president will be ready, able, and willing to pursue a #progressive agenda."

The Biden win was welcomed in the United States and around the world, but the difficult part will be governing. For social democrats it is an open question whether the incoming president will be ready, able, and willing to pursue a progressive agenda.

The 9/11 Era Is Now History

The 9/11 era is an era ultimately defined by defeat. #America didn’t win its wars; it withdrew and is still withdrawing from them. But while #JoeBiden’s election looks like an act of restoration, his new administration will not be able to simply revert back to past practices", argues Max Bergmann in our latest paper with the Center for American Progress.

Die #USWahlen2020 sind vorbei, doch die Analyse bleibt weiterhin spannend!

Welche Wählergruppen waren entscheidend für den Sieg von #JoeBiden? Und warum sind die sogennanten #BlueWall Staaten so wichtig? Knut Dethlefsen erklärt es hier 👇

Für Bidens Sieg kam es, wie schon 2016, auf die so genannte »Blaue Mauer« im Mittleren Westen an. Dazu feierten die Demokraten Überraschungserfolge in Georgia und Arizona. Den Wahlsieg verdankt Biden vor allem ethnischen Minderheiten und Arbeitnehmer_innen.
