Progressive Congress Action Fund

Testimonials — It's about bringing progressives and progressive leaders in Congress together.


Progressive Congress doesn’t just make us more productive and effective as lawmakers.
The excellent team they’ve put together helps us and our own staff work smarter when crunch time comes on a particular issue.
They fill important gaps in what we can accomplish, and they give us in Washington and the grassroots around the country a means to communicate with one another that only gets stronger with time.
