At a Glance
In response to historic inequities that have only been exacerbated during times of crisis, JFF urges policymakers to think about COVID-19 recovery differently. This recovery must be equitable, with a vision that ensures systemic transformation, fosters community revitalization, and provides individuals from all backgrounds with career and educational opportunities, as well as the supports they need to succeed.
To realize that vision, JFF has created this policy framework for Equitable Economic Recovery, which includes a set of three policy pillars and four guiding principles that provide a road map for how the country can deliver on the promise of economic advancement for all. Now is not the time to focus on “getting back to normal”—back to systems and institutions that were failing far too many people. We need to leapfrog normal and aim for something better. Now is the time to reimagine how to move forward together to a more resilient, more prosperous, and more equitable future.
