PROGRESSIVE GRAFFITI

The REAL Progressive Candidates of 2021 & 2022 — A Nationwide Super List

As genuine progressive candidates announce their run for election, they’re added to this list: “The REAL Progressive Candidates of 2021-2022.” These are the special men and women we want to elect, for a progressive Congress and for a civilized progressive nation.

LAST UPDATED: January 16, 2021

What qualities make a candidate REAL-ly progressive? There are two main criteria:

  1. Real progressive candidates reject corporate money.
  2. Real progressive candidates fight for the progressive trinity:
    1. Universal Healthcare
    2. The Green New Deal
    3. Free Public Higher Education (including student loan debt forgiveness).

Yes. REAL progressive candidates fight for all three: your health, your climate, and your education — and, most likely, ALL OTHER progressive policies! REAL progressive candidates advocate for life-affirming and future-proofing policies.

Share the list of “Real Progressive Candidates” with your friends and family. Use it to inform, and to spur constructive political discussion that talks about real progressive candidates and their progressive policies.

Help the list grow. Tell me about the real progressive candidates running for office in your local area — so I can add as many down-ticket real progressive candidates to the list, as possible. (Use the Comment Section below.) Thanks for the help! #NotMeUs
