MOVING COLORADO FORWARD
ProgressNow Colorado is the largest online progressive advocacy organization in Colorado. We work to build progressive power, hold leaders responsible, and ensure equality for all.
OUR APPROACH TO PROGRESS
Democracy works best when every voice is heard. As the largest online progressive advocacy organization in Colorado, we connect people online with the issues of importance offline. ProgressNow Colorado informs you about what’s happening in Colorado and gives you the tools to make your voice heard.
It is not enough to elect public leaders and then sit back while they’re in office. ProgressNow Colorado is on the job 24/7 to let you know how our elected officials vote, what they say, and where they stand on progressive issues. We focus on Colorado, from local fights on up.
The progressive values of investing in our communities and equality, opportunity, and justice for all are what drive us here at ProgressNow Colorado. We translate dense policy into clever campaigns to change hearts and minds. Sometimes we do this on our own, and sometimes we partner with issue experts.
"Yesterday's caucus results in Iowa prove again how the Republican Party is at war with itself, with a discredited party establishment overrun by their most radical and dangerous elements," said ProgressNow Colorado political director Alan Franklin.
Help us fight conservative hypocrisy. Again and again, conservatives say they are for family values and then do all in their power to oppose families. Rep. Kevin Priola voting against parental leave for school activities, after asking to be excused to attend to his own child’s needs is just the latest, sad example.
After a display of callous hypocrisy last week in the Colorado House Education Committee, ProgressNow Colorado called on Rep. Kevin Priola to apologize for voting against parental leave for school activities--a bill that would help working families just like his own manage their important responsibilities to their children.
When we say that right-wing Sen. Tim Neville is the most dangerous man in Colorado politics, we mean it. Neville has wasted no time in 2016, laying out an agenda in the Colorado legislature that would strike at the heart of the values we as progressives have spent a decade in Colorado fighting to uphold. Help us fight against him.
Another dishonest right-wing candidate has jumped into the U.S. Senate race. Last week, we asked for an investigation of Rep. Jon Keyser to determine if he violated rules against campaigning on government pay
