Since 2005, the DA has worked to advance progressive values by building community and collaboration within the movement. Our members support a strong infrastructure of progressive organizations, grassroots leaders, engaged voters, and elected officials who work to defend democratic values, institutions, and norms and advance an alternative progressive vision: a fair democracy where everyone can participate, a growing economy that works for all, a planet that is healthy and safe, and a nation that is equitable and just.

At the core of DA’s work is our investment portfolio of national progressive organizations working make our collective vision for the future a reality. These collective investments strengthen an integrated system of local, state, and national organizations that build vital capacity to generate policy, drive progressive messages, organize and empower key constituencies, and train the next generation of leaders. Our investment recommendations have always supported the 4 pillars of our values: an inclusive economy, a healthy environment, a real democracy and racial equity.

In 2015, the DA adopted a statement of values that recognizes the imperative of investing in the states and building the power of the New American Majority: people of color, LGBTQ individuals, women, and millennials who are driving progressive social change. Our State POWER Funds, active in a dozen key states, are a key part of this strategy, working to align funding and build a long-term infrastructure that can elect progressive champions and advance progressive policy.
