Join the Post-Progressive Alliance

Apply to Join Our Nonprofit Association

The Post-Progressive Alliance (PPA) is a new nonprofit membership association for people who identify with the emerging post-progressive perspective. Through conversation and fellowship, we are exploring and advancing a new kind of cultural and political higher ground.

This aspirational ideal of higher ground is the general focus of our ongoing 90-minute conversations, which take place on the second Wednesday of every month on Zoom, from 5:00pm to 6:30pm Mountain Time (4:00- 5:30 Pacific, 7:00-8:30 Eastern). In addition to monthly online conversations, we will also convene in-person gatherings and other events later in 2021. PPA is an association of the Institute for Cultural Evolution, a 501c3 Colorado nonprofit organization.

Those who wish to join the Post-Progressive Alliance must apply and be accepted.

    • Why is a post-progressive approach to politics needed now?
    • How does post-progressivism differ from other political perspectives?
