Conservative messaging dominates online, thanks to meme pages like Canada Proud and amplification operations like the ones that bolster Ben Shapiro and Dan Bongino. Disinformation spreads across botnets and influencer networks. Big money flows into think tanks, media outlets, and tech firms to support conservative causes.
Meanwhile, the left finds ourselves constantly on the defensive, often isolated and fighting our own battles against vastly better equipped opponents, on information landscapes that are hostile to our values. And our political leaders too often rely on an elite caste of political consultants with a less-than-spotless record to run the same tired campaigns optimized for churn'n'burn fundraising instead of, you know, winning.
It doesn't have to be this way.
Progress Champions is the direct inverse of the political consultant class. We are a central hub for skill shares, workshops, and training on every aspect of modern campaigning and organizing - the nitty gritty, nuts and bolts details you need to successfully build power and make change.
In addition, we work on the cutting edge intersection of tech and organizing, finding ways to turn low-cost, off-the-shelf tech tools into big force multipliers, especially for under-resourced campaigns. And we share all of this with progressives completely free of charge. Instead, we keep the lights on entirely through grassroots donations.
We are here to close the innovation gap and arm progressives to compete and win in the 21st century.
