We demand progress through:
Special Projects
When the moment or issue demands it, we dive in on longer-term projects, leveraging our staff and resources to win big victories in the fight for transparency, equity and justice.
No Corporate Cabinet
Demand Progress is a leader on the No Corporate Cabinet Campaign, which is fighting to make sure the Biden administration is staffed with people who have demonstrated records of working in the interest of the general public, instead of those stepping through the revolving door from Wall Street, Big Tech, military contractors, Big Pharma, the health insurance industry, or the fossil fuel industry.
The First Branch Forecast
How do we build a stronger, more capable Congress? The First Branch Forecast is our weekly newsletter, with tons of research and analysis on improving the First Branch of government.
Continuity of Congress
When a disaster strikes, can Congress keep operating? At Continuity of Congress, we round up resources and research about legislative continuity from around the world.
The Congressional Research Service publishes thousands of reports on policymaking questions facing lawmakers. We republish those reports in a user-friendly format.
Agency Spotlight
The Agency Spotlight tracks appointments to leadership positions at 39 agencies through the confirmation process and beyond. The Spotlight monitors and exhibits key votes for three prominent agencies — the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Transparency Caucus
Congress has a transparency caucus, and we help coordinate its advisory committee. Come watch videos of our panel discussions that cover every issue under the sun.
Freedom from Facebook and Google
Demand Progress is a co-founder of Freedom From Facebook and Google, a coalition mobilized to get federal regulators and Congress to break up these tech giants, regulate them to keep us safe, and hold them accountable for their wrongdoing.
Demand Progress is a co-founder of the Athena coalition, a broad coalition formed to protect our democracy, our communities, and our economy from Amazon’s unaccountable power. Together we work to push Congress and federal regulators to act against Amazon’s grip on our society and economy and protect workers’ rights and civil rights.
Fourth Amendment Advisory Committee
Demand Progress launched the Fourth Amendment Advisory Committee with a robust group of bipartisan allies to support the work of the Fourth Amendment Caucus. With this platform, we bring a diverse array of experts to speak directly with Congressional decision makers and the public about the Fourth Amendment.
Our hub for unique research and analysis of government surveillance, including what records the government collects on people in the United States under the PATRIOT Act, FISA generally, and other claimed authorities.
Battle for the Net
The central hub for online net neutrality activism. Battle for the Net has been home to some of the largest digital days of actions in the history of the internet, helping to secure major wins in the fight against Big Cable for strong net neutrality protections.
Team Internet
Our innovative distributed organizing project, run alongside our partners at Fight for the Future and Free Press Action. Team Internet built a network of volunteers, combining grassroots power with technology to create hundreds of in-person rallies across the country to hold lawmakers accountable and restore open internet protections.
