Building progressive volunteer power for state legislatures

We need a change

About Downballot Progress

Downballot Progress advocates for progressive leadership within state legislatures across the nation while also organizing efforts to reshape our democracy to create a just and equal country.

Through targeting the most high impact seats, we’re advancing policy solutions that reflect the power of the progressive movement we know we already have while also preparing for the future. Together, we can take back our state houses.

What We Do


We research the over 7,500+ state legislature seats to find where volunteers can make the most impact in advancing national progressive causes.


We then promote policy, lobby legislators and recruit volunteers to support candidates who will be additional or decisive votes to pass crucial, progressive legislation in those states.

Promote Reform

Downballot Progress will promote current progressive policy solutions within state legislatures including creating progressive tax systems, promoting Green New Deals for every state, and strengthening social justice in all pieces of legislation.

Strengthen Democracy

But we’re also strengthening our democracy for the future by promoting solutions like canceling the electoral college, adding a voting rights amendment to the United States Constitution, and getting rid of corporate money in politics.

Why volunteer?

By joining Downballot Progress, you’re building the permanent volunteer infrastructure our movement needs to bring forward change today and tomorrow. Only together can we build the political power necessary to reshape our democracy to meet the crisis we face now and in the future.
