What we Do - Who We are

We are a grassroots movement to rebuild democracy in the Heartland.

On January 20, 2017, Inauguration Day, a group of friends met to commiserate over drinks. We discussed the number of progressive minded friends that we had personally and deduced that there had to be more in this area, feeling the same sense of hopelessness and pure shock. This conversation led to a group message among friends to see if there was interest in meeting to discuss ways to turn that hopelessness in hope and shock into action. What started as a group text between 16 friends has turned into a movement of 450+ progressive minded individuals in a very short time.

There is a severe lack of progressive leadership in Kentucky. We do not feel like progressive values are taken into consideration in any capacity. We feel that our leaders in Kentucky do not listen to all of their constituents and refuse to acknowledge the fact that there are large numbers of marginalized groups across Kentucky that feel they have no voice.

Heartland Progressive Alliance wants to be that voice. We want to be a positive force in the Heartland. We want to do work in this community that brings people together at a time where there is only division. We want our political leaders to be accountable to their constituents. We want more....

This group is young and we are just getting stated. If you have progressive values and feel like you are ready to help facilitate change in Kentucky, we would love your help. An inclusive community is a happy community!!!

What Is Our Platform?

 Out platform includes supporting, training, and advocating for progressive-minded political candidates.  We will persistently apply pressure on political power to implement measures decided on by the body, in accordance with progressive values.  We will support and/or co-sponsor events with other progressive organizations.  Our platform is one consistent with our values; justice, peace, freedom, equality, compassion, empathy, and concern for all life.
