Inaugural Convening Of The “National Progressive Action Coalition” Zoom Call

Dear Progressives/Friend,
You are receiving this letter because you have been formally invited to join the inaugural convening of the
National Progressive Action Committee (NPAC), an all-inclusive, intergenerational, diverse, and
multi-cultural “beloved community” with the goal of curating a space for people to find their individual
and shared power.
By uniting progressive organizations and leaders throughout all 50 states and all 435 Congressional
Districts under one umbrella we are able to build the “critical mass” needed to pass progressive legislation
on the federal, state, and local level. NPAC will focus on galvanizing cross-sector support, developing
progressive policy, and halting harmful legislation.
We want you to join us at our inaugural meeting Thursday, February 10th at 4pm CST.
If you are on PST that will be 2pm, 3pm for MST, and if you are on EST that will be 5pm.
By working both “inside and outside” of Congress, state/local government, and other institutions, NPAC
will use diverse nonviolent tactics and effective, peaceful, grassroots organizing as a means to achieve
liberty and justice for all.
What does “liberty and justice for all” look like through the NPAC lens?
● Economic and social justice for all;
● a safe, sustainable, and clean environment;
● ending racial injustice and systemic racism;
● defending democracy and the right to vote;
● and peaceful resistance to violence in all of it’s forms including authoritarianism, and intimidation
from powerful special interests.
With our collective power we will hold politicians accountable to the needs of the people, and work to
elect progressive officials.
