Though APG will highlight a broad range of progressive candidates, causes, and non-profits, our focus until November 3rd, 2020 will be putting a progressive leader in the oval office.
Progressive Policies are built upon the fundamental beliefs of the Civil Rights Movement and the teachings of Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King and the movement were successful in banning “racial or other discrimination in employment and voter registration practices”, and ended segregation in schools, at the workplace, and in public accommodations. Sadly, Dr. King was assassinated before he could address his second dream, economic freedom.
Progressive Policies have been espoused by countless non-profits, thinkers, activists, and advocates, but not until Bernie Sanders and the of 2016 presidential race did bold progressive policies enter the main stream and receive majority support across party lines. We’ve begun a new era of democracy where legal bribery of elected officials, predatory lending, and profit-driven healthcare are on the cusp of antiquity. These progressive policies routed in Democratic-Socialism are what we hope to see passed in 2020 and beyond.
