It’s no surprise that one of our favorite events each year is our national convening – bringing together the most inspiring group of unapologetically bold local elected leaders, partners, and allies to be in community and create shared strategies for equity and justice.
That’s why we’re thrilled to kick off the new year by sharing that our 2023 National Convening will be September 6 – 9 in St. Louis, Missouri!
All across the country, local governments are advancing the most innovative solutions to our biggest problems and creating new models of governance. At Local Progress, we work on a broad intersectional progressive agenda driven by a vision of racial and economic justice.
Here we spotlight some of our biggest and rapidly growing bodies of work:
Are you newly elected to office? Looking to expand your leadership ?
The Progressive Governance Academy (PGA) is a program designed to help progressive state and local elected officials develop the leadership and governance skills they need to be powerful and effective leaders.
Trainings cover a range of topics including: developing a policy agenda, tools for accomplishing their goals, and navigating complex challenges of governing as an elected official.
We organize and build the infrastructure in key states to impact policy and governance outcomes at the state level. Working together across cities, towns, counties and school boards, Local Progress members engage in strategic campaigns to win pivotal legislative victories at the local level and build state power.
We currently have fully certified chapters in New York, Texas, North Carolina and Minnesota, and we are organizing across the state in Florida.
Interested in working with local elected across your state to win progressive change at all levels of local government and impact policy outcomes at the state level?
