Goals

Our progressive values put into action.

Patriots for Change sets priorities for advocacy in January of each year with input from members at the Annual Meeting.

This year is particularly challenging due to change of administrations and attacks on progressive principles. “Indivisible” guidelines will be used by Patriots, alone and in collaboration with partners, to influence congressional and state legislatures.
