Get Progressives elected

The next step is to elect progressive candidates to local and state seats whenever possible, inspiring and recruiting progressive candidates to run for offices across the entire spectrum of government. From school boards to congressional seats, creating a new generation of political leaders; to return faith in American democracy.

Know the Issues

Social Justice and Income Inequality

American Civil Liberties Union - Whether it’s achieving full equality for LGBT people, establishing new privacy protections for our digital age of widespread government surveillance, ending mass incarceration, or preserving the right to vote or the right to have an abortion, the ACLU takes up the toughest civil liberties cases and issues to defend all people from government abuse and overreach.

Robert B. Reich - Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley and Senior Fellow at the Blum Center for Developing Economies. He served as Secretary of Labor in the Clinton administration, for which Time Magazine named him one of the ten most effective cabinet secretaries of the twentieth century. He has written fourteen books, including the best sellers "Aftershock", "The Work of Nations," and "Beyond Outrage," and, his most recent, "Saving Capitalism." He is also a founding editor of the American Prospect magazine, chairman of Common Cause, a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and co-creator of the award-winning documentary, INEQUALITY FOR ALL. 

 


Campaign Finance Reform

Every Voice - Americans want—and deserve—a government that’s truly of, by, and for the people. One in which the men and women they elect to Congress are free to do what’s best for their constituents and their country, what founding father James Madison called a government “dependent on the people alone.” To do that, we must change the way our elections are financed through legislation like Congressman John Sarbanes Government By the People Act (HR 20). Instead of relying on Wall Street executives and lobbyists for campaign contributions, participating candidates could rely on their constituents back home. Here’s how it works:

Represent Us - bringing together conservatives, progressives, and everyone in between to pass powerful anti-corruption laws that stop political bribery, end secret money, and fix our broken elections. State by state, ending corruption – and putting voters at the heart of our political system.
