NPA News

 

 The New Progressive Alliance (NPA) s 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 we publish at New Progressive Alliance, Leftist Third Party and  Independent Candidates, and Green Party Activists. Because of censorship and privacy problems with Facebook, we also publish on the social networks MeWe, JustNform, and Twitter. In JustNform we publish in Truth Bomb Activists and an NPA page.) Connections to all of our allies may be found here.

  • In August we published a book review by Sondra Miller on the book “STAR SPANGLED SHARIAH.”
  • Robin Hensel is running for Little Falls, MN mayor election on November 6, 2018. She has endorsed the Unified Platform and in August 2018 earned the New Progressive Alliance endorsement just as she did in 2014. For details and a full list of those who have endorsed the Unified Platform see this.

  • In July 2018 we welcomed Ilkmade as our 54th ally. Ilkmade is a news sharing site that brings together Political Science scholars, policy researchers and practitioners onto a single platform and provide them the tools to share and discuss ideas and points of view that really matter. It does not have an agenda, but it does allow academic arguments to be made. This is important because as, as Chris Hedges has pointed out in his many books, academia has failed us and we need alternatives.
  • In July 2018 we published an article about increased gentrification in Florida.
  • In June 2018 we published an article about the need for whistleblowers such as Julian Assange.
  • In June 2018 the New Progressive Alliance  welcomed “Classrooms, Not Computers” and “Center for Political Accountability” as allies 

Center for Political Accountability: American citizens — and even shareholders — don't know which companies are influencing elections, how much they spend, or what the consequences are to this country. The lack of transparency — and the opportunities for bias, preferential treatment, and backroom deals — runs counter to the very concept of our democracy. The Center for Political Accountability seeks corporate political disclosure and accountability.

“Classrooms, Not Computers” seeks to promote a democratic, humane, developmentally appropriate public school environment and to oppose our current corporate public school structure.
