Michigan Progressive Resources

Michigan is going through a a difficult time. It's become clear that Michigan can no longer rely on the auto industry to be the engine of the state's economy, yet the leaders of Michigan cling to the autoworking past, and have a difficult time imagining a new road.

Luckily, progressives traffic in new roads, and the progressive community of Michigan is working hard to reimagine their state in a more sustainable model. No longer can Michigan workers rely on paternalistic corporations to sustain them. A more democratic model is called for, and so the old liberal ideals are returning to Michigan's workplace.

At the same time, Michigan's natural environment is under assault by a sprawl that eats up 5 acres of open land every hour. The old internal combustion model burns up territory with highways, and fills up the road with gas guzzling sport utility vehicles.

Detroit has had its time, and while good locals try to resurrect the once-great motor city, other areas in Michigan are stepping up to carry the slack. The upper peninsula, emptied of the lumber companies and mining operations that stripped it clean, is returning to a more natural state, and the people there are finding that that nature itself is the greatest resource they have. All along the lake shores, progressives are fighting against corporations that seek to steal the Great Lakes water and ship it far away.

The need in Michigan has never been greater. We put together this directory of progressive Michigan resources to help bring greater notice to the hard working liberals that have always formed the true foundation of Michigan politics. We've found a great deal of progressive action in Michigan, but we're sure that there's even more to be found. We want to help all the Michigan progressives, so, if you know of any progressive groups, information resources, or candidates in Michigan that we don't already have listed here, drop us a line and we will happily consider adding links to them as a part of this growing catalog of Michigan progress.
