🥁 DRUM ROLL PLEASE... 🥁

Y'all, the new #HousingPlaybook is FINALLY here! 🎉

#Housing is a human right, and we believe that housing policy must guarantee that everyone has a safe, affordable place to thrive.

No matter what.



(1/?)

If the Biden-Harris admin and new Congress want to prioritize racial justice and equity in COVID-19 relief and long term, safe and reliable housing is the cornerstone of economic security. This is a blueprint for how to help move the country toward that vision. #HomeIsEssential

As lawmakers investigate ties between Capitol Police and White supremacists, they must also investigate long-standing allegations of racism within its ranks.

Next time you hear about how our resilient democratic institutions held up, assure folks that smart, relentless organizing won this fight. It’s the only thing that ever does.

Glad to see the Biden-Harris admin start their #First100Days with EOs that address the #COVID19 crisis & undo some of the Trump admin's xenophobic immigration policies. Looking forward to seeing action on criminal justice reform & holding corporate enablers of racism accountable.

And now as @chrislhayes makes it a conversation among pundits AFTER HAVING THE WH COMMS DIRECTOR ON both @ezraklein and @AdamSerwer (both of whom I like) are fretting...after 72 hours in power...that Democrats "still don't get it".

This is what pisses your audience off, @MSNBC

We were clearly talking about the senate and the filibuster, but I’m not going to sugar coat anything now that Biden is in office. If you’re expecting that you’re definitely going to be disappointed.

Before Christmas, Trump conspired with the acting head of the civil division to force Georgia to invalidate its certification. Only a full DOJ revolt and three hours of arguments convinced the President to back down.

Another big win for workers today! @JoeBiden is leading by example by putting 70,000+ federal contract workers on a path to $15/hr. Today’s executive action shows he's listening to working people demanding to respected, protected and paid so they can provide for their families.

I spend a lot of time looking in detail at abusive situations where tech plays a starring role: stalkerware, bossware, remote proctoring, etc. But nothing I'd read really prepared me for the tale of @arisevsinc, an abuser without parallel.

Just like the finance industry, where the investor takes all the risk.

In today’s NYT, @claudiasahm argues for an expanded use of automatic stabilizers as part of any new fiscal package. There seems to be consensus building with @JanetYellen, @BrianDeeseNEC and even the President speaking about stabilizers. Brief thread

Crucial to consider automatic stabilizers in fiscal policy. State & local aid, stimulus payouts, etc. should be designed as automatic stabilizers like Medicaid & UI

Haven't listened yet, but the incomparable @thegennywithag along with pros @dorianwarren & @MHarrisPerry has to make for great radio. Or do we say great podcasting? I dunno. I'm so old.
