Your Progressive Link to News, Information, Conversation, Organization and Political Campaigns for All Fifty States


People seem to love to trash Alabama, and that's not fair. The state has a reputation as a political backwater in which conservative attitudes and practices reign supreme. This reputation is not entirely earned: Alabamian women played an important role in progressive movements of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and we all are (or should be) familiar with the centrality of Alabama to struggles over civil rights in the 1960s. The fact that in the present day, progressive Alabamians find themselves in a distinct minority should be a point of encouragement, not despair. No preaching to the choir here: Alabama is a place where real change can happen.

If you know of additional candidates, information resources or organizations in Alabama of a progressive inclination, let us know so we can consider including them here.
