WHO ARE WE EXACTLY?

ProgressWomen began as a project December 2014 through my office after women kept asking “What can I do to get involved politically?”  We are now a collective of over 1000 women statewide (and growing) who are sick and tired of attacks on women & families in Missouri, in so many ways. 

Check us out online. Open up your address book & refer us every progressive woman you know.  Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @ProgressWomenUs & Facebook @ProgressWomen.

You’ve heard this before – “it’s going to take a village”.  Tired of their nonsense?  You in?
