Platform

IE United was created with the intention to restructure leadership and culture in the Inland Empire to more accurately represent the identities and progressive values of the residents. We aim to do this by building coalitions of grassroots, labor, and community leaders that are committed to transforming our local communities. We have a record of identifying corrupt policies and ineffective leaders that have sold out our communities for too long. We will directly challenge these leaders, remove them from office, and replace them with people who better reflect our values and priorities.

Our coalition is made up of community leaders and organizations committed to affecting transformational change in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties. We believe this sort of change can only be effective if it is intersectional and inclusive by nature. Each of our policy platforms were drafted to ensure racial, gender, and LGBTQ equity are core to the agenda. We welcome you to click on any of the following pieces of our platform to learn what our partners are doing to advance that vision.
