It gives me great pleasure to announce Keystone Progress as the latest addition to our list of co-sponsoring organizations for our October 20th single-payer healthcare rally.
Keystone Progress was founded just over a year ago by Michael Morrell. Its mission is to provide a strong, credible voice in advancing progressive solutions to critical community problems here in Pennsylvania, working as a communications team for the entire progressive community. Its goals are to 1) help grassroots activists use cutting-edge internet and new media to organize online at the state and local level; and 2) assist progressive partner organizations with message development and earned media strategies to promote a progressive agenda, counter right-wing misinformation, and hold public leaders accountable.
In a very short time its e-mail network has grown to be one of the most powerful progressive organizations in Pennsylvania. Its email network has grown to include 200,000 members. They have generated thousands of stories in the traditional press and online media, reaching an audience of millions.
We are honored that Keystone Progress has chosen to become a co-sponsor of our rally.
