Building Real Progressive Infrastructure...

Lots of people talk about building permanent progressive "infrastructure" to the point where the term "infrastructure" has become a political buzzword unto itself. But there's a difference between talking about things, and actually doing them successfully. And when the latter happens, as it has over the last year with the Progressive States Network, it is a big achievement - one that could not have been done without the continued and critical support of the grassroots.

Though the organization has been around for only one year, the staff has been involved in a wide array of campaigns in the states, offering technical, legislative, media and promotional support to state legislators carrying the progressive agenda. The organization has, quite literally, fielded hundreds of requests for expert support in the current legislative sessions on wide array issues - from payday lending to public financing of elections to renewable portfolio standards, we've been there.

But no campaign has gotten as much attention as the Progressive States Network's Anti-Escalation Campaign.
