Progress requires movement. Taking action together. Getting things done. Forward leaning. Critical thinking.
This is the motto of this week's featured organization, the Progress Hive. The mission of Progress Hive is to organize forward-thinking Americans around a wide range of progressive issues. They are advocates to protect and promote the rights and meaningful issues of marginalized or minority communities around the United States, and they emphasize forward thinking regarding mental health, physical health and civil rights.
Progress Hive formed in the aftermath of the 2016 election. It's founders knew that in the face of a Trump presidency we would need to rally people of conscience to fight hate and bigotry, and to continue to advance the causes that are dear to our hearts.
Some of those causes include:
- defending the rights of people of color, Muslims, LGBTQ, women, people with disabilities, and all minorities
- becoming the world's clean energy leader and aggressively fighting climate change
- getting unaccountable money out of politics and making campaign finance reform a reality
- supporting veterans and the men and women of our military
- making debt-free college a reality
- ensuring the health and safety of all Americans
- supporting progressive candidates for office
- registering voters, and ensuring that all eligible voters have access
That's a lot to cover. But unlike most of the organizations that we promote, Progress Hive is not a 501(c)(3) and does not take donations.
What they are is a clearinghouse for action and news, and all they want is for you to join them. Check in with their Facebook and Twitter accounts and you'll be updated with information about progressive candidates, voting rights initiatives, and more. Join their mailing list and you'll receive regular communications about actions you can take at the district, state, and national level.
