Local Progress is a powerful network of hundreds of local elected officials in nearly every state who are committed to reclaiming the power that cities and counties have, and advancing our shared vision of shared economic prosperity, equal justice under law, livable and sustainable communities, and good government that serves the public interest. The network includes the progressive champion mayors of large cities like Newark, New Orleans, New York, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia, as well as the leading progressive councilmembers from cities as diverse as Austin, Baltimore, Dallas, Chicago, Denver, Miami, Nashville, Philadelphia, and San Diego. The network also includes district attorneys, county commissioners, and elected officials representing small cities, rural towns, and school districts.
Local Progress is open to any local elected official committed to values of shared economic prosperity, equal justice under the law, livable and sustainable communities, and good government that serves the public interest. Membership is open to any local elected official regardless of party affiliation, and Local Progress does not request or track the partisan identification of our membership.
Local Progress is a project of the Center for Popular Democracy, which is responsible for day-to-day operations, policy coordination, and membership engagement. For more information about our 501 c(4) partner, Local Progress Action, please visit www.localprogressaction.org.
