The Progressive magazine published its first issue on January 9, 1909 as LaFollette’s Weekly. 108 years later, we are still fighting for the same values.
We stand against militarism and the concentration of power in corporate hands. We champion peace and the empowerment of the citizenry, social and economic justice, civil liberties, human rights, a preserved environment, and a reinvigorated democracy.
The Progressive publishes voices of dissent and those under-represented in mainstream media. Our goal has always been to champion grassroots progressive politics.
The Progressive is more important than ever before. Our nation, and our movement, face grave challenges. We are bringing new focus and new energy to the vital work of this storied publication. We will continue to cover, both in print and online, the voices of people and movements seeking to build a better world.
In solidarity and struggle,
The staff of The Progressive
