The Local Progress network includes more than one thousand members—Town and City Councilmembers, School Board Members, County Legislators, Mayors, and many others—who together hail from nearly every state. Our network counts members from most of the nation’s 50 largest cities, as well as members from hundreds of suburban, rural, and urban jurisdictions. Leading progressive councilmembers from cities as diverse as Austin, Baltimore, Dallas, Chicago, Denver, Miami, Nashville, Philadelphia, and San Diego make up our membership. The network also includes county commissioners, city treasurers, and elected officials representing small cities, rural towns, and school districts. Local Progress has a strong focus on supporting and developing the leadership of women and people of color in elected office.
Membership in Local Progress is free of charge. Local Progress is open to any local elected official, regardless of party affiliation, committed to our vision of advancing a racial and economic justice agenda through all levels of local government and building power with underrepresented communities.
