Home >> About Us
Heartland Democracy wins over Midwestern hearts and minds to just and sustainable policies through public engagement on shared progressive values, policy initiatives, and the power of active citizenship.
Our communities range from the block to the town, from the state to the region, and from the nation to the world. Communities exist, too, among colleagues, friends, and other groups in which two or more folks get together, in person or online. We note that many of us live, work, commute, and travel across state lines. We grew up in one state and live in another. We have friends and family across the Midwest. We share common values and principles. Heartland Democracy aims to regionalize thinking and collaboration so as to achieve in the Midwest together what we cannot accomplish alone.
Positioning & Value
Much more can and must be done to win over more Midwesterners to pragmatic progressive public solutions. While existing strategies and groups are necessary, they are not sufficient. Heartland Democracy is undertaking a unique combination of strategies to meet its vital mission. We have got to make long-term investments now to bring a resurgence of practical progressivism across the Midwest.
Heartland Democracy defines itself and its work, in part, by the progressive values it highlights: Community, Justice, Equality of Opportunity, Sustainability, and Accountability.
