“Lawrence Nathaniel believes as the country moves towards a brighter and more progressive future, we must set the stage for a new day in political representation.....”
Our Progressive Platform.
Our collective voice can’t be heard if it’s muzzled. The key to repairing our broken political system includes electing candidates who are committed to real change on our issues.
Housing as a Human Right
Nathaniel believes that housing is a right and that Congress must push the balance away from housing as a gambling chip for those at the top and fight for accessible housing that’s actually within working families’ reach.
Nathaniel is committed to investing in addressing the needs of the whole child from cradle to career starting with high-quality, affordable childcare and pre-kindergarten programs, continuing through fully-funded public schools, and on to post-secondary opportunities that will lead to a lifetime of success.
In order to address runaway global Climate Change, Nathaniel strongly supports transitioning the United States to a carbon-free, 100% renewable energy system and a fully modernized electrical grid by 2035. He believes renewable fuels must be produced in a way that achieves our environmental and energy security goals, so we can move beyond oil responsibly in the fight against climate change.
Rural America Act
As someone who is from and wants too represent a rural state -- improving the lives of rural Americans is a top priority for Nathaniel. Addressing the infrastructure crisis facing the country – and creating the millions of jobs our economy desperately needs – will be an essential plank of Nathaniel campaign.
Medicare for ALL
Improved and Expanded Medicare for All is the ethical, logical, and affordable path to ensuring no person goes without dignified healthcare. Medicare for All will reduce the existing costs of healthcare (and make Medicare cheaper, too!) by allowing all people in the US to buy into a universal healthcare system.
Federal Job Guarantee
A Federal Jobs Guarantee would create a baseline standard for employment that includes a $15 minimum wage (pegged to inflation), full healthcare, and child and sick leave for all. This proposal would dramatically upgrade the quality of employment in the United States, by providing training and experience to workers while bringing much-needed public services to our communities in areas such as parks service, childcare, and environmental conservation.
