"If there is technological advance without social advance, there is, almost automatically, an increase in human misery, in impoverishment."  --Michael Harrington

Social Advance is being developed as a citizens action organization open to members of any or no political party. Our goals are:

Citizen empowerment

  • Moving power from the alliance of big government and big business to an active citizenry.

Emergent economics

  • Moving the economy from profit seeking for the few to caring for the well-being of the many.

Responsive democracy

  • Moving elections from a two-party system dependent on big donors to an open political system responsive to voters.

Universal respect

  • Moving social relations from domination over others by violence and intimidation to respect for the rights of all people.


Our primary tactics will include:

  • Informing, educating, and activating the public with an affiliated online news and information service;
  • Endorsing candidates for public office and ballot measures;
  • Persuading public officials to support policies furthering our goals; and
  • Promoting mutual respect within the organization and in all of our activities.
