The mission of the Progressive Women's Alliance is to influence public policy through the election of candidates and the advocacy of a progressive agenda.

PWA fights for candidates and policies that honor the dignity and worth of every individual. In the face the apparent victory of bigotry and misogyny at the top of the ballot in 2016, we are proud of the victories of our endorsed candidates.

2016 victories:
  • State Representative, MI-60 - REPRESENTATIVE JON HOADLEY
  • State Representative, MI-76 - REPRESENTATIVE WINNIE BRINKS
  • Grand Rapids Community College Trustee - KATHLEEN BRUINSMA
  • Kalamazoo County Prosecutor - JEFFREY GETTING
  • Kalamazoo County Commissioner, District 3 - TRACY HALL
  • Kalamazoo County Commissioner, District 5 - JULIE ROGERS
  • Kalamazoo Public Schools Board Trustee - LAUREN FREEDMAN
  • Kent County Commissioner, District 19 - PHIL SKAGGS
  • Oshtemo Township Clerk - DUSTY FARMER
PWA continues to advance a progressive agenda that includes the strengthening of public education, protecting access to women's health, promoting sustainable environmental practices, addressing rising income inequality, and restoring public confidence in our electoral system.
