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.
This week, Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado and his right-wing allies in the U.S. Senate began the process of repealing the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare. Gardner doesn’t have a plan to replace Obamacare, and over 20 million Americans who depend on the health coverage they’ve obtained through the law could lose access.
What comes next? We have to stand together for what we believe in no matter what the politicians in Washington do. Colorado can be a model for fixing the problems America faces.
Every election features its share of lies. But this year, in our local state senate race here in Arvada and Westminster where my family and I live, the lying has gotten totally out of hand.
ProgressNow Colorado has created a ballot guide for statewide ballot initiatives in 2016.
A press release from ProgressNow Colorado.
Gov. John Hickenlooper is undecided about whether to support Amendment 70. He has hinted that if enough Coloradans come together, we could get him to publicly support an increase in the minimum wage.
Unfortunately, Ken Witt, president of the recalled board, isn’t finished trying to harm public education in Colorado just yet. Last week, Donald Trump announced that Witt is the Trump campaign’s state “education coalition co-chair.”
