The Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) and its nearly 1 million members and growing nation-wide believe in fighting for bold progressive change. It's not enough to agree with us on the issues we champion -- heroes in Congress and candidates on the campaign trail that we support also believe in fighting for these values.

Founded in 2009 by Adam Green, a former MoveOn online organizer and Democratic Party communications worker, and Stephanie Taylor, former MoveOn and SEIU organizer, the PCCC has been at the forefront fighting for progressive change ever since.

The Nation magazine awarded PCCC “Most Valuable Campaign” of 2011. MSNBC’s Ed Schultz calls PCCC “the top progressive group in the country.”[1]

Democracy Spring

Demanding the passage of four bills that would limit the ability of billionaires to control American politics, over 400 people were arrested April 11 2016 for sitting in at the U.S. Capitol. Many of the demonstrators had marched some 150 miles from Philadelphia to dramatize the fact that the voice of working people is being drowned out by the super rich.

"Today, I join others in non-violent civil disobedience in order to ... draw attention to our corrupt campaign finance system and rigged voting laws," said Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC), one of about 100 national organizations, unions, churches and community groups backing the demonstrations at the U.S. Capitol and the Philadelphia to DC march.

The marchers, including people from at least 33 different states, were welcomed by churches and community groups along the route and joined by Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig, author-activist Frances Moore Lappe, Congressman Dutch Ruppersberger, D. Md., actor Sam Waterston and actress Gaby Hoffman.
