What is Progressive Dane?

 

cropped_PD_photo_banner.jpg

Progressive Dane is a progressive political party in Dane County, Wisconsin. Progressive Dane believes that ordinary citizens should control public policies at the community and national levels. We support tax justice, better social services, equality in public education, affordable housing, and public transportation. Progressive Dane helps community members organize around issues that are important to them and also works on the grassroots level to elect progressive political candidates.

What Makes Progressive Dane Different?

 

A POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE

Progressive Dane brings together people committed to making government responsive to our communities' urgent needs. We believe our best solutions come from communities themselves, not the Democrats, Republicans, and the powerful moneyed interests they both serve.

FORMING ALLIANCES

Progressive Dane seeks to ally progressive activists and community organizations to form a powerful, united, and independent force in electoral politics and non-electoral struggles.

MEMBERSHIP-BASED

Progressive Dane is democratically run by its members. The general membership makes decisions based on values and principles before partisanship. Click here for information on how to join Progressive Dane.

ACCOUNTABILITY

We make no apologies for expecting endorsed candidates to remain accountable to their campaign promises and to our progressive program. They are recruited to work with each other and Progressive Dane on a regular basis.
