Political issues are what define a movement. In the 1910's it was Women's Suffrage. In the 1930's in the wake of the 1929 stock market crash it was the New Deal reforms of Roosevelt. In the 1960's it was Civil Rights. In the 1970's it was Women's reproductive rights, the ERA, and the anti-war movement. In the 1990's and 2000's it was LBGTQIA+ rights. Issues are what define our political struggle to be a more perfect union. They are serious issues worthy of serious debate.
Without progressive leadership none of these landmark issues would every have made the United States a more perfect union. The only way we will continue to become a more perfect union is with an organized progressive movement in politics.
Here are some of the issues that define New Jersey Progressive Democrats of Union County, the future we envision, and the issues we are actively organizing around.
