About

Progressives Everywhere is a newsletter and website that spotlights and fundraises for progressive Democrats around the country — up and down the ballot — worth supporting with your time and money. The newsletter brings you insight into compelling candidates, gives you the rundown on the most important political races across the country, and provides you the tools to help the fight against Trump and the GOP.

As the author of the newsletter, I speak with candidates across the country who are running for both national and local office, and report on the campaigns that the press often ignore or misunderstand. Democrats have long ignored local races or caved to corporate interests, allowing the party to hollow out and lose the trust of voters. That's enabled the GOP to take over across the country and rip-off just about everyone but the millionaires who donate to their campaigns. It's absolutely crucial that we fight for progressive values in every district in the country.

Progressives Everywhere supports Medicare for All, a national jobs guarantee, a woman's complete right to choose, robust labor rights, free public college, gun control, and reigning in corporate monopolies. The mission is to fight for candidates that will work for those crucial policies, and help you keep tabs on the growing resistance movement as we head toward the election. 

So far, Progressives Everywhere has raised over $525,000 for progressive Democrats in the last year, all on the power of small-dollar donations. The newsletter and stories raised money for candidates in crucial races that helped recapture Congress. We helped elect state representatives in Ohio, Colorado, Texas, and New York, flipping the control of chambers or breaking supermajorities. We helped finance successful ballot initiatives to expand voter rights and healthcare. We helped expand progressive groups' footprints in places they normally wouldn't even exist. It was a very successful year.

As we move forward through 2019, Progressives Everywhere is only getting busier and more ambitious. That means more time spent researching, interviewing, transcribing, and writing — which in turn means doing less other work for pay. It means running a new site and resource: Election-Calendar.com, another project that is done in the public interest.

So far, this has been done entirely out of pocket. But as the project grows, that becomes less and less feasible. That's why I started this Patreon — not to turn a profit, but to make sure Progressives Everywhere can continue to do this work and I can afford to keep it going.
