Mission Statement

The Coalition of Capital Region Progressives is a volunteer, grassroots association of progressive activist groups in Upstate New York encompassing Albany, Rensselaer, Schenectady, Saratoga and Washington counties. Leaders and representatives from these groups meet regularly to:
Learn about current issues, governmental actions and candidates for office
Share information about each group’s activities
Support, plan and execute activities of mutual interest to maximize community attendance and impact
We hope our efforts promote a fairer, kinder, and healthier America. We are stronger together.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”  -Barack Obama
