Founded in 2008, Progress Florida is a nonprofit organization promoting progressive values through online organizing, media outreach, and networking with Florida's leading progressive organizations.
Progress Florida advocates for progressive, pro-middle class policies and holds our elected officials accountable by empowering citizens in their communities. We're fighting for social justice, economic fairness, strengthening public education, health care reform, environmental protection, and much more.
Progress Florida combines online organizing and communication with offline action to win progressive solutions for our state and local communities. Our goals are to:
- Build a stronger progressive movement in Florida. Progress Florida uses innovative, internet-based organizing and communication tactics to expand public support for progressive causes, organizations and leadership in local communities and throughout the state.
- Win advances in progressive public policy. Working closely with other progressive organizations, Progress Florida offers concerned citizens effective, easy, and fun ways to make their voices heard on critical policy decisions that impact our quality of life.
- Generate hard hitting traditional and new media coverage. Progress Florida works to generate news coverage that shines the public spotlight on progressive solutions to real problems. We work with our extensive network of members and advisers to maintain a 24-7 rapid response media operation that pulls no punches when taking on the extreme right.
- Increase civic participation and educate the public. Progress Florida activates our members and ensures that the progressive voice is heard on issues that matter to Floridians. We watchdog the actions of Florida's elected leaders and hold accountable those officials who are in the pocket of corporate special interests.
