When the pandemic hit, the Democrats and Republicans spent trillions of dollars bailing out Wall Street while leaving tens of millions of people unable to afford food and housing. Now Congress is meeting to write the final coronavirus stimulus bill.
That’s why on July 11, we will lead marches and honking car parades to the homes of U.S. Representatives and Senators to demand that the final stimulus bailout working people and not Wall Street. We demand a #PeoplesStimulus.
The communities rising up against police brutality and systemic racism are the same communities that are being hit the hardest by this pandemic and economic depression. The Movement for a People’s Party stands in solidarity with the communities whose pain and struggle have been deeply exacerbated these past few months. This is a time to make bold demands for justice.

Our Revolution Los Angeles and the Movement for a People’s Party invite you to finish the political revolution in a #PeoplesParty! The Democratic and Republican parties are controlled by corporate money and do not answer to working people.
Polls show that a large majority of Americans want a major new party, support progressive policies, and want money out of politics. That means that it is both possible and necessary for us to build a corporate-free, progressive populist party.
If you’re with an Our Revolution chapter or other organization that would like to affiliate or learn more, or you would like to form a local MPP hub, fill out this form linked below and we will set up a meeting to speak with you or your members and answer any questions you might have.
Our vision is a coalition party that will deliver what regular people take for granted in so many other countries: single payer health care, free public college, money out of politics, an infrastructure jobs program, a $15 minimum wage, financial regulations, and more.
We need actual representation in our government. A majority of people in the US don’t feel represented by either the Democratic or Republican parties. We’ve watched these parties turn their backs on us to answer every call of the billionaires and donors. Overwhelming numbers of Americans understand these parties cannot be salvaged. Polls show that almost two out of three Americans are now calling for a major new party. It’s time to build the party we’re looking for — one that brings us all together.
Update on the People’s Convention in the face of coronavirus:
We all recognize our whole world has changed due to the pandemic shutdown. The DNC has postponed their convention to August, but it’s impossible to predict whether this date will stick. In light of this, we are working now on several innovative options for this event, originally planned for July in Milwaukee, with particular focus on what would be best for our supporters and for achieving our goals in this time of great change.
We will update you shortly with more exciting details.
One thing has become abundantly clear, however: there’s never been a more critical time for a major new party.
Wealthy donors and big corporations have two major parties. The people have none.
Together we’re building a coalition of working people, unions, and progressive groups for a nationally viable people’s party.
Help build the party that works for us. We’ll email you about campaigns, events, and opportunities to get involved.
