Overall Quest
An America that works for all of us

 

An America that works for all of us is a narrative that unites a wide variety of issues, as presented in long narrative form and in a slide show with script. Below we list the banners that shape the narrative and examples of issues that can be described under each banner. These are just examples; every issue can be placed under at least one banner and some fit under multiple banners.

 

Banners:

An economy that works for all of us, not just the wealthy few.

  • Good jobs – minimum wage; pay equity; earned sick; etc.
  • Job creation; infrastructure; climate/green jobs
  • Freedom to organize a union

A government that works for all of us, not just corporate lobbyists.

  • Education: K-12 and higher ed
  • Health care
  • Retirement and social security
  • Taxes and budget issues

A democracy that works for all of us, not just CEO campaign contributors.

A nation that works for all of us.

The full version of this narrative is a powerful telling of how we create a progressive America, guaranteed to get a great audience response. It is designed to tell a powerful, understandable story as a whole AND to be a guide to communications separately about any of the issues addressed. You can apply this narrative frame to anything from a short sound bite on one issue, to organizing materials, email blasts, blogs and opeds, testimony to a whole speech.
