What We Do

Local Progress is a national network that supports, connects, and unites progressive local elected officials and allied organizations from across the nation. We are driven by a commitment to a strong middle and working class, equal justice under law, sustainable and livable communities, and government that serves the public interest effectively.

At Local Progress, we believe strongly in the notion that all politics is local. We know that the fight for social justice begins by organizing in our neighborhoods and communities. We know that cities and counties have the power to lead on critical public policy issues. And we know that by coordinating ideas, sharing legislation, and creating space for information and innovation, we can help progressive officials drive their agenda forward.

There are no duties or obligations for members. It doesn’t cost a penny, registration takes less than a minute, and any municipal elected official can join. We offer our members valuable policy and strategic resources, interesting events in person and online, some staffing support for legislative efforts, and the opportunity to connect with hundreds of other elected officials. Staff members, advocates, members of community organizations, and anyone else who is interested in building a strong progressive movement is also invited to join as a supporter.
