For the first time, the Courage to Change PAC is issuing a distinction to candidates seeking local, state and federal office who successfully complete our national questionnaire. The Courage to Change Distinction seeks to identify those candidates who are truly committed to social, economic and racial justice - rather than those candidates who would superifically claim the progressive mantle.
The questionnaire asks candidates to commit to policy pledges across eleven different areas. Ultimately, a Courage to Change candidate: believes in ending the influence of special interest and corporations in campaign finance; expanding union power everywhere; increasing investments for infrastructure projects that emphasize sustainability, equity and access for everyone; adopting the Green New Deal, and its principles of jobs, justice, and decarbonization; increasing public safety through education, jobs, healthcare, and community-based programs; making housing permanently affordable, inclusive, and widely available; passing Medicare for All; making public colleges and universities tuition-free while cancelling all student debt; treating all immigrants with dignity and respect while creating a pathway to citizenship; and expanding voting rights to protect our democracy.
The Courage to Change Policy Pledge Distinction should not be considered an endorsement from Rep. Ocasio-Cortez when awarded.
Courage to Change Policy Pledge Distinctions will be announced on a rolling basis. You may submit your completed Candidate questionnaire today, and all Candidate questionnaires must be submitted to CTC on or before April 1, 2022.
