Progress North is a trusted organization in the Northwoods, the primary focus of which is connecting the people of northern Wisconsin to each other – and others across the state – across the deep divisions of race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and generation.
We center all of our work around the values of equity, people-centered democracy, and the common good.
We are from northern Wisconsin and we know that people here have a strong sense of identity centered in their rural communities and small towns- and that each has its own unique sensibility. But there are common values and ideals that connect us all and make this a wonderful place to live. We have the opportunity to focus public attention on creating a country where everyone is safe and free, with a care system and economy that works for all of us.
And we have a clear vision for a better future: by coming together to rewrite the rules and making the wealthiest few pay their fair share, we can ensure that everyone — Black, white and brown, native and newcomer — can earn a good living and have a good life; we can resource our schools so that every child can pursue their dreams; and we can provide families with the care we all need to get and stay well.
Progress North is an independent project, fiscally sponsored by TakeAction Minnesota.
