Progressive Legislative Action Network

Beginnings

Circa 2006, progressive blogger, veteran political activist, David Sirota, launched a new group called the Progressive Legislative Action Network , which just received a $200,000 grant from George Soros’s Open Society Institute, as well as support from AFSCME, SEIU, and other unions and progressive groups, including MoveOn.org. The aim of the new organization was to push progressive legislation at the state level. PLAN bills itself as the leftwing answer to ALEC. [1]
