People Over Profits is centering a new conversation to put working people first. It is time for our political conversation to be centered on those who work the hardest, not those who can afford to speak the loudest. It is time for a new focus on working Americans.
Florida and the nation deserve a bold vision — a future where every American has equal access to the ballot, where a fair day’s work earns a living wage, where health care is a right and not a privilege, and where every family enjoys clean air and clean water. We’re building a progressive movement to make that future a reality.
NEWS & OP-EDs
Mark A. Keroack and Subramony Subramonia-Iyer: Congressman Richard Neal is taking the right approach on ‘surprise medical billing’

Sean Shaw: Don’t let insurers put profits over patients

SUPPORTING EX-OFFENDER VOTER REGISTRATION
People Over Profits is proud to support ex-offenders as they exercise their constitutional right to register to vote under Amendment 4. Our lawyers and advocates are working to make sure every returning citizen has the opportunity to register under the new laws.
WORKER'S RIGHTS: We must put the interests of working people ahead of quarterly profits, shareholder dividends, and stock buybacks. We believe that every worker should earn living wage, that health care should be universal, high-quality, and affordable, and that workers should have a say in their workplaces through strong unions.
CIVIL RIGHTS: The right to vote, to take part in civil society, to live without fear of violence — these are essential to our democracy. New restrictions on the right to vote, such as voter ID laws and limits on early voting, are as undemocratic as the poll taxes and literacy tests of sixty years ago. We are fighting for a future in which all civil rights are truly universal.
QUALITY OF LIFE: Every family deserves clean air and clean water to raise their children. We all deserve safety from violent storms and wildfires. However, decades of putting profits for wealthy special interests first has resulted in an environment that is too often unsafe — and growing worse. We believe it is time to embrace science and embrace practical solutions to restore our environment and stop climate change.
These are our values. We believe they should center a new, progressive political conversation to put working people first. We hope you’ll join us.
