Progressives for Democratic Reform Founded 2016

ABOUT

Augusta's Progressives for Democratic Reform has organically evolved out of the need for informed voters to lead action and discussion at the community leadership level. In so few months our membership has met each week to reform local political structures, become members of partner organizations, held rallies and functions making our voices heard directly, and grown the progressive movement like never before in the CSRA. Joining is easy so don't hesitate to become an active participant and continue making history with us!
