Founded in January 2009, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) is a national grassroots organization with a mission of building progressive power. With nearly one million members, we help better, bolder progressive candidates get elected, work with them to govern progressively, and work outside of government to build power. We care more about the 20-year strategic plan for building progressive power than the 2-year election cycle. MSNBC’s Ed Schultz calls the PCCC “the top progressive group in the country. ”The Nation magazine awarded PCCC “Most Valuable Campaign of 2011” for our Draft Elizabeth Warren campaign.  

In 2013, our issue work includes: Protecting Social Security and Medicare benefits from cuts, strong gun laws, bold jobs plan, campaign finance reform, and Wall Street accountability.
