Become part of the solution at I Am Progress

There’s something about the political process that occurs every four years in the United States that has the ability to make even the most neutral person start holding firm opinions and standing up for their beliefs. While both Barack Obama and John McCain argue that they’ll bring change to this country, you can bring your own change with I Am Progress.

With a sleek, modular design, it’s clear that this is a network for forward-thinking, innovative activists, and it also goes a fantastic job of showing how different a network on Ning can look. Once you take in the design of the network, it’s fascinating to hear why different members consider themselves activists in the Videos section. Each video tells a unique story of one person’s belief in progressive politics. One person is a progressive because the environment, while another stresses equal opportunity.

If you want to take part in the network, and in the movement, the first step is to join the network. Then you can get started contacting legislators, educating yourself about the issues and learning about past progressive heroes. No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, don’t be left sitting on the sidelines.
