    I am really interested in figuring out how to craft and enact progressive reform. Someone above cited an organization called ALICE that has the excellent goal of changing the conversation at the local and state level. As an aside, I cringe at the similarity of its acronym to ALEC - I hate to see what progressives do as anti-"whatever Republicans do", as I think that is part of the problem - we spend more time pushing back on their agenda instead of advancing our own. So we attempt to "save" social security/medicare rather proposing to expand their benefits/lower their eligibility ages/cover more people/everyone, etc.

    But that aside, ALICE looks like an org with decent goals and I will check them out. And thanks to all who responded to my question.
