Our mission statement:
To strengthen our Democracy and achieve economic, environmental, and social justice for all through civic engagement and Progressive grassroots action.
We want to create a system in which Lincoln’s dream of a “government of the people, by the people, and for the people” becomes a reality. We support policies that will lead to more transparency in government, weaken the influence of the donor class, encourage higher voter turnout, and provide greater citizen participation in the process.
We want to create a more balanced and robust economic landscape that works for everyone. We want equal opportunity for those in the working and middle class to raise the standard of living and foster upward mobility. We believe poverty can and must be eradicated.
We want to create policies that address the reality of global warming, single greatest threat facing our planet, and save the environment for future generations. We believe that clean drinking water is a basic human right and that government policy must prioritize water rights over corporate profits.
We want to create a society which respects the inherent dignity and worth of every person, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, country of origin, gender, or sexual orientation. We will defend the rights of the disenfranchised and work to ensure equal protection under the law.
