Mostly in their own words.

  • Institute for Global Communication "The Institute for Global Communications (IGC) is a nonprofit organization that provides alternative sources of information as well as online access and comprehensive Internet services for progressive individuals and organizations."
  • Economic Policy Institute "The Economic Policy Institute is a nonprofit, nonpartisan think tank that seeks to broaden the public debate about strategies to achieve a prosperous and fair economy." Check out the "State of Working America" section.
  • Center on Budget and Policy Priorities "The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities is a nonpartisan research organization and policy institute that conducts research and analysis on a range of government policies and programs, with an emphasis on those affecting low- and moderate-income people."
  • ZNet Sponsored by Z magazine; excellent discussion forums. "ZNet is a community of people concerned about social change and eager to learn from, enjoy, and work with one another. It is an interactive home base for progressives, a launch pad for research and study, and an interactive center for exchanging information, developing ideas, and jointly pursuing shared agendas."
  • The American Prospect "The aim of The American Prospect is to contribute to a renewal of America's democratic traditions by presenting a practical and convincing vision of liberal philosophy, politics, and public life. We publish articles for the general reader that attempt to break through conventional understanding and creatively reframe public questions. Ours is not a magazine of complaint, of angry gestures, or of private irritations. It's a magazine of public ideas, firmly committed -- however unfashionably -- to a belief in public improvement. America can do much good, and it can do much better."
  • Mother Jones Magazine "The Foundation for National Progress is a nonprofit activist organization dedicated to advancing progressive causes through media. In addition to publishing Mother Jones and the MoJo Wire, the Foundation's projects include training interns in investigative journalism, and the Mother Jones International Fund for Documentary Photography."
  • Democratic Socialists of America "The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States, and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. DSA's members are building progressive movements for social change while establishing an openly socialist presence in American communities and politics."
  • Critiques of Libertarianism   Mike Huben's exhaustive site of critiques of Libertarianism.  This is no mean feat, given that the number of libertarians willing to mouth off on internet news and discussion groups seems to exceed their actual number in the population.  I think I remember reading somewhere that many computer industry types tend to be of this persuasion, or chiefly Republican.  Lack of social skills and social imagination may account for the number.
  • Socialist.org  An Australian directory of democratic socialist parties and organizations throughout the world.  "Socialist.org is a site dedicated to providing information about the democratic socialist movement on the internet."
  • Bay Area Progressive Directory "A guide to about 1000 organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area of interest to progressive activists."
  • The Huffington Post
