AnInd.org is a political action group dedicated to promoting American values of liberty and justice, which we believe are under attack by the current administration and Congress in Washington. We are focused on old-fashioned progressive action, mostly at the local level, but not all progressive action is on the left side of the political spectrum! Many important battles are taking place in areas that progressive Republicans support as well, such as the Environment, Public Safety, Jobs, and Health.
We also support nationwide activities, but believe that the road to democracy starts at home. Our meetings will focus on concrete actions that people can take, how to be politically effective in a world where time is precious, and how to find and work with like-minded people and groups to achieve those goals.
