For All of Us, By All of Us: Challenging State Interference to Advance Gender and Racial Justice

Type Policy Brief or Report
Year 2019
Level City or Town, State
State(s) Colorado, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Tennessee
Policy Areas Civil Rights, Democracy & Governance, Economic Justice
Corporations and their political allies deploy state preemption to stop local progress and block the abilities of local governments to act on the values and needs of their communities. This report uses data from Colorado, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee to demonstrate how communities, particularly low-income women of color, are working towards equitable policies around paid sick days, wages, and affordable housing, only to be blocked at the state level by lawmakers caving to corporate pressure or following an anti-regulation agenda.
