We are the NYS Democratic Committee Progressive Caucus.

    As our first order of business, after electing our Executive Committee in May 2013, the NYS Democratic Committee Progressive Caucus members identified the following issues as matters of priority:
  • Education 
  • Election Issues: Independence Party, Fusion Voting, Cross-Party Endorsements 
  • Fracking 
  • Healthcare & Single Payer 
  • Housing & Mortgage Foreclosures 
  • Women’s Issues

 We welcome people who are willing to Chair these subcommittees and move forward.  As we all know, there is plenty of work to be done on all of these issues throughout the state. Sign Onto Our List ...or Write to Us
