Close your eyes and think of New York, and you'll see Manhattan. Look at a map of New York State and you'll see that there's an awful lot more to New York than just the city. For one thing, there are other cities of substance in that great huge area called Upstate. For another thing, there are huge agricultural areas, producing as much corn as Iowa. Then there's the Adirondack State Park, the largest park east of the Mississippi River.
No matter what you're looking for, New York has it: City, country, mountains, beaches, old growth forests, new ideas and some of the greatest schools in all America. New York is everything the red states are not, and it's no accident that so many people flock to the state that serves as the home of progressive politics.
There is so much progressive political and cultural activity in New York State that we have had to focus our initial progressive directory for New York to statewide organizations and progressive groups that are based in areas outside of New York City. After all, progressive groups in Gotham already get plenty of publicity, both in the state and in the nation.
That said, progressives everywhere in America are in need of support. So, if you know of any progressive candidates, information resources or organizations either in NYC or outside of the city, that we don't have listed here, let us know and we will consider including them in our growing index.

Messages for a Progressive New York
The Irregular State of New York
A note about being a New York progressive. Don't assume that just because we're progressives, we automatically support the Democratic candidate. Sometimes, as in the case of Senator Chuck Schumer, the Democrat isn't worthy of support.
It is because we are New York progressives that we can no longer support Charles Schumer.
