The Black Lives Matter Global Network is a chapter-based, member-led organization whose mission is to build local power and to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. We are expansive. We are a collective of liberators who believe in an inclusive and spacious movement. We also believe that in order to win and bring as many people with us along the way, we must move beyond the narrow nationalism that is all too prevalent in Black communities. We must ensure we are building a movement that brings all of us to the front. We affirm the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum. Our network centers those who have been marginalized within Black liberation movements. We are working for a world where Black lives are no longer systematically targeted for demise. We affirm our humanity, our contributions to this society, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression. The call for Black lives to matter is a rallying cry for ALL Black lives striving for liberation.Go to Web Site
We, the American people, have everything we need to reverse our economic decline and achieve prosperity for all our citizens; we have 320 million amazing people, vast natural resources, the best universities in the world, and an economy abundant with capital and innovation. The only thing standing in our way is the corrupt and complacent political establishment. Once we elect a Brand New Congress, we know that America can finally do what is necessary to bring about true liberty and justice for all.Go to Web Site

We are grassroots activists, environmentalists, advocates for social justice, nonviolent resisters and regular citizens who’ve had enough of corporate-dominated politics. Government must be part of the solution, but when it’s controlled by the 1%, it’s part of the problem. The longer we wait for change, the harder it gets. Don’t stay home on election day.

The Democratic Party is broken, and the corporate wing of the party is responsible.
By aligning with Wall Street over working men and women, the Democratic Party has allowed Republicans to take over most state legislatures, most governorships, Congress, and the presidency.
The solution is not unity with the corporate-backed Democrats. The solution is to challenge them and replace every single one of them with people who will fight for voters, not donors. It’s time to rebuild the Democratic Party from scratch to be a party that fights for a clear progressive vision.Go to Web Site
The large majority of Americans are progressive. They want single payer health care, free public college, money out of politics, financial regulations, a $15 minimum wage, an infrastructure jobs program, and more. A large majority and record number of Americans are also calling for a major new party.
The country is beyond ready for a new nationally viable progressive party. But our movement is divided into thousands of smaller organizations working independently of one another. That forces each group to devote a large amount of its resources just to competing with each other for supporters, volunteers, media, and donations. On the whole, that means much fewer resources are directed outwards, towards challenging the establishment and actually affecting change.
The progressive community has the power to create the nationally viable alternative to the Democrats and Republicans that Americans are clamoring for. But overthrowing the establishment parties will take a broad alliance. That's why we're building a coalition of working people, unions, community groups, student chapters, academics, progressive parties and left organizations to launch a new people's party.
Our intrepid field leaders and volunteers across the country are approaching groups and discussing the coalition with them. They are emissaries of the coalition, and one conversation at a time we are bringing groups together for the party that will complete the political revolution and usher in a twenty-first century progressive era.Go to Web Site

Progressive Democrats of America was founded in 2004 to transform the Democratic Party and our country. We seek to build a party and government controlled by citizens, not corporate elites—with policies that serve the broad public interest, not just private interests. We are a grassroots PAC operating inside the Democratic Party, and outside in movements for peace and justice. Our inside/outside strategy is guided by the belief that a lasting majority will require a revitalized Democratic Party built on firm progressive principles. Progressive Democrats of America’s vision is rooted in the aspirations of all people for liberty, economic opportunity, guarantees of civil and human rights, peace, and social justice.Go to Web Site
