I Pledge to Win International Cooperation!
Are you a Justice Is Global candidate running for office? Sign the Justice Is Global Pledge to help win a world where we work across borders for equitable growth, international cooperation, and sustainability,.
By signing, you pledge that:
- The biggest and most pressing challenges we face are global in scope: pandemics, climate change, militarism, authoritarianism and nationalism, corporate power, and inequality
- In the face of these global challenges, the destinies of working families in my community and across the United States are linked with the destinies of people all around the world
- These global challenges require the U.S. to pursue deep international cooperation in order to build global solutions
- A just and sustainable global economy is possible, but in order to build that future we must confront those who seek to divide us by race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, gender identity and sexual orientation, including those corporate interests which seek to exploit our divisions for the sake of their profit and power
Therefore, you commit to:
- Support structural reforms to the global economy that will create good jobs for all and expand public goods, increase the power of workers everywhere, reduce the power of corporations and oligarchs, and combat the root causes of authoritarianism and nationalism
- Help end the pandemic everywhere by supporting an international waiver for patents for COVID vaccines and other medications, calling on U.S. pharmaceutical companies to share their technologies globally, and supporting greater funding for vaccine production and healthcare domestically and globally
- Support a Global Green New Deal to fight and stop climate change worldwide by ensuring the US provides its fair share of international financing for clean energy infrastructure, climate adaptation, and climate reparations, providing debt restructuring or cancellation for developing countries, and reforming international trade and investment rules
- Support policies and diplomacy that strengthen international cooperation in order to address all of our shared global challenges and achieve a sustainable, equitable global economy for people of all countries
- Reject a worldview of zero-sum competition between the U.S. and China and avoid rhetoric that scapegoats China or people of Chinese descent for social and political problems in the United States
- Support reductions in the U.S. military budget in order to increase funding to meet human needs in the United States and abroad
- Reject campaign contributions over $200 from executives, lobbyists, and PACs affiliated with the military industrial complex, the fossil fuel industry, or pharmaceutical corporations
