Deepening Democracy issues are about our democratic institutions and where they are threatened or not strong enough. Examples: money is not speech/corporations are not people, money in politics, transparency issues, voter registration, and the design of our primaries and elections.
Economic Inequality are issues that result from an unjust distribution of wealth. Examples include: raising the Minimum Wage, equitable taxation, funding for schools, policies around school (student) loans, economic development, health care for all, good public transit, and affordable housing.

Environmental Justice issues are anything having to do with the environment. Examples would be stopping new fossil fuel infrastructure, stopping coal and oil trains, outdoor school for all children, farm and forestry practices, good public transit, and energy legislation.
Human Rights are about threats to human dignity, especially when focused on those with less power and subject to racism, sexism and homophobia. Issues would include: indigenous rights (First Nations), Black Lives Matter, immigration reform, prison reform and reform of our court system.
