Ambitious Political Organization Launched in Indiana Looks to Advance Progressive Candidates

    INDIANAPOLIS, IN, February 02, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — Indiana welcomes a new Political Action Committee in the form of INProgress, a grassroots advocacy group that announced its plans to champion progressive policies and improve the material conditions of working-class Hoosiers. INProgress will recruit candidates in state legislative races across Indiana with an eye towards toppling the Republican supermajority in the Indiana General Assembly. “It’s not about electing Democrats,” said Josh Cox, the organization’s founder. “It’s about electing people who will fight for the homeless and the indigent. For the family in rural Indiana drowning in hospital bills and struggling to put food on the table. Not just electing them, but holding them accountable until the hungry are fed, the homeless are housed, and the medical bills stop.” With a focus on leveling the partisan playing field and pushing for racial, social, economic, and environmental justice, INProgress will organize for a livable minimum wage that exceeds $15 an hour, push for comprehensive education reform and housing as a human right, advocate for Medicare for All and the cancellation of medical debt, stand up for criminal justice reform which ends the predatory cash-bail system, support the legalization of marijuana, and endorse numerous other policies that prioritize the well-being of Indiana’s working class. INProgress will pursue a campaign finance system that bans corporate donors and emphasizes the needs of working-class citizens over elite interests, particularly the protection of workers placed in inhumane conditions during the COVID-19 pandemic and those who are severely underpaid.Indiana has long been considered a bellwether for the political predilections of the United States, going blue at critical junctures, most notably for Barack Obama in the 2008 Presidential election where the state was carried by a little over one percent. Indiana has supported a Democrat for president just five times since 1900, despite half of its governors in the 20th century hewing to the left, making it a key swing state. Although a number of cities in the state tend to favor Democrats, Indiana has woefully limited progressive infrastructure, and voters are frequently resigned to choosing between far-right Republican candidates and centrist Democrats. While as recently as 2009 Democrats held a majority in the statehouse, the GOP now wields nearly three times as many elected officials in the House and Senate. With millions of Americans uninsured and unable to put food on the table, with nearly half a million COVID-related deaths and counting, the time has come to challenge the power structures that unrelentingly benefit the few over the many, and INProgress aims to do just that.INProgress is an Indiana Political Action Committee located in Indianapolis, IN and can be found at www.indprogress.org[1].# # #
