Politicians Failed Us in 2020. Our Movements Built Lasting Power.

Even as 2020 took turns for the worst, the seeds of justice and liberation extended their roots.

For decades to come, 2020 will be remembered for the failures of politicians and capitalism. In a selfish bid to “save the economy” and rally his base ahead of the election, President Trump and his allies spread disinformation about COVID-19 and threw common-sense public health measures into the meatgrinder of partisan politics. Predictably, the United States became one of the world’s worst hot spots for COVID-19, exposing every crack and fault line in society. As of this writing, the death toll is nearing 300,000. To say that the Trump administration failed to flatten the curve is a gross understatement.

Meanwhile, Congress has failed to provide pandemic relief for months, even as millions of children go hungry and families struggle to afford even basic expenses.
