Endorsements

Progressive Rising is a traditional, nonconnected PAC that aligns itself with the current Progressive movement emboldened by the ideas of Progressives like Bernie Sanders & AOC. We exist to help give Progressives in rural red districts hope by helping Progressives running for office. We will work to support Progressive candidates around the nation who support Medicare For All Single-Payer Healthcare, a Green New Deal, Racial Justice, Rural & Ag Reform and accept NO corporate PAC money.
