NPA News

 The New Progressive Alliance is a 100-percent volunteer, educational organization comprised of ACTIVE ACTIVISTS dedicated to improving the lives of working men and women and their families by positively influencing public policy. We work to awaken Americans to the reality that only through supporting candidates who support our concerns will those concerns be met. Toward that end, we support the Unified Platform; participate in official public comment opportunities to regulatory agencies; and sponsor and partake in a host of events designed to raise public consciousness of the extent to which corporations maintain near-total control of the political and policy-making process in this country.

I.  News: (Publishing in social media means at a minimum showing a reference to an article  in Facebook at both New Progressive Alliance and Leftist Third Party and Independent Candidates. Connections to all of our allies may be found here.)

  • In October 2017 the New Progressive Alliance published a United Nations warning with documentation on climate change.
  • In October 2017 the New Progressive Alliance welcomed the Delaware Riverkeeper Network as an ally. While national and international environmental efforts have not always been successful, often local efforts such as made by this plucky organization have been more successful in stopping fossil fuel expansion. The goals fit well with the NPA’s Unified Platform stand on saving the environment.

The Health and Environment Alliance is a leading European not-for-profit organization addressing how the environment affects health in the European Union and demonstrating how policy changes can help protect health and enhance people’s quality of life. The goals fit well with the NPA’s Unified Platform stand on saving the environment and Medicare for all.

III. Public Comments:

    The NPA continues to make Public Comments to federal agencies and legislative bodies in the United States and Canada on specific issues to support the Unified Platform  To see all Public Comments  in full we have made since 2012 or see them summarized with our other activities in Annual Reports look here.

  • Public Comment 138: October 2017 – World Bank - Stop Financing Fossil Fuels - In October 2017 the New Progressive Alliance urged the World bank – just as we had in April 2015 – to stop the cycle of poverty by financing fossil fuels. 

  • Public Comment 137: September 2017 - In June 2017 in Public Comment 123 the New Progressive Alliance with other organizations backed the California Disclose ACT AB 14. This passed both houses and is now before the governor as AB 249. AB 249 significantly improves disclosures on ballot measure and independent expenditure ads, requiring their three largest funders to be shown clearly and unambiguously on television and print ads. Public Comment 137 as a letter signed by the New Progressive Alliance and other organizations went to Governor Brown urging him to sign.
  • Public Comment 136: September 2017 - The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has a long record through both Democratic and Republican administrations of blindly approving and refusing to regulate energy companies. In Public Comment 136 the New Progressive Alliance joined with other organizations in a Congressional letter opposing FERC.
  • Public Comment 135: September 2017 - The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has a long record through both Democratic and Republican administrations of blindly approving and refusing to regulate energy companies. In Public Comment 135 the New Progressive Alliance joins with other organizations in holding a rally at FERC’s first meeting since January 1017 on September 20, 2017.
  • Public Comment 134: September 2017 - DRBC Stop Penn East Pipeline - The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) has enough information to deny the Penn East Pipeline and the New Progressive Alliance with other organizations encouraged the DRBC to do so.

  • Public Comment 133: September 2017 - The New Progressive Alliance in September 2017 joined many other agencies and organizations in urging Congress to oppose ideological irrelevant riders which hide the true purpose of legislation.

  • Public Comment 132: September 2017 - The New Progressive Alliance in September 2017 agreed with the Seattle Disability Commission which voted unanimously to recommend the city end the sub-minimum wage for disabled people.  There is no evidence that lowering the minimum wage increases hiring of handicapped people. In addition, disabled people frequently need more money to survive.
