Health equality for all Americans including a healthy life and high-quality health care
Everyone will have equal access to affordable, high-quality health care, and racially disparate health outcomes will end.
Protect and enhance voting rights and fair representation
Every American will have free, open, equal, and protected access to the vote and fair representation at all levels of the political process.

A free, high-quality, public education for all
Every child will receive a free, high quality, equitably-funded, public pre-K and K-12 education followed by diverse opportunities for accessible, affordable vocational or university education.
Expand the presence of youth consciousness in every aspect of the Association
Young adult engagement will be key in policy research, development and advocacy on all levels. Greater support is being made to enhance the capacity of local units to recruit, engage, train and retain young adults.
A chance to live the American Dream for all
Every person will have equal opportunity to achieve economic success, sustainability, and financial security. This includes access to fair, quality, affordable housing, for people of color.
