All right - no puns about Fargo here. No references to the movie either. North Dakota is not a punchline, or a cinematic set for Californians searching for the dark underside of something-or-other. North Dakota is for real, and the politics there are as tough as they come.
If you buy the Republican hype, you believe that North Dakota is pure right wing territory. Of course, it's not. There are plenty of strong, principled progressives just south of Saskatchewan, without much hope that their efforts will be recognized, but with plenty of determination to give it their best shot anyway. A thick stew of good liberal values is simmering just beneath the crusty skin of knee-jerk conservatism across the state.
We put toghether this collection of progressive resources in North Dakota because we want to help the grassroots activists of North Dakota in their struggle to bring the values of freedom and fairness back to the top. Of course, there's a mighty big territory to cover between Wahpeton and Williston, so we're looking for help in expanding out listings. If you know of any progressive candidates, information resources or organizations in North Dakota that we don't have listed here, let us know so that we can consider including them in our growing index.
