Marching in the 2019 HKonJ march in Raleigh.

Progressive Democrats are fighting for economic, environmental, racial, and social justice. We believe that everyone deserves food and shelter; health care; meaningful work that pays a living wage; a clean environment; equal protection under the law; and, having their vote count.

We are a caucus of the North Carolina Democratic Party, promoting the progressive agenda within and through the Party.
