Progressive Massachusetts (“Progressive Mass”) is a new, statewide, diverse grassroots organization built from the ground up by organizers and activists from across Massachusetts.
We organize around progressive issues in Massachusetts, help elect and support progressive candidates for public office who are committed to making a difference on these issues, and hold elected officials accountable to progressive positions and values.
Progressive Mass works to move Massachusetts toward a future where the values of equal opportunity, social and economic justice, consumer and environmental protection, health care as a right, equal access to quality public services, respect for all residents and accountable and transparent government are given top priority.
Progressive Mass welcomes all progressives regardless of political affiliation.
Progressive Mass is committed to organization-building in all areas of the state, educating and training progressive activists, creating opportunities for ongoing engagement, working to elect more progressives to public office, and continually holding all elected officials accountable for their positions on issues of importance to the people of Massachusetts.
Progressive Mass is a member-driven organization. Our members determine what campaigns we endorse and what work we undertake.
We will work to build a progressive Massachusetts through:
- Issue Organizing
Progressive Mass chooses issues and takes policy positions through a democratic decision-making process. We organize our members to take actions in support of these public policies, including direct contact with elected officials and rapid response to hearings and votes on Beacon Hill.
- Electoral Organizing
Progressive Mass evaluates, endorses and supports candidates for public office in Massachusetts who represent the progressive values and goals of the organization, including in party primaries. Candidates will be endorsed through a democratic process, using criteria developed by the membership.
- Organization Building & Education
Progressive Mass builds the membership and power of progressives throughout the Commonwealth by identifying and supporting local leadership, training organizers and volunteers, providing up to date information on progressive issues and legislation moving on Beacon Hill.
