There is a new progressive majority in America, and as time goes on it will only get bigger. In order to make sure that demographic majority becomes a governing majority, our primary job as progressive activists is to mobilize that majority and make sure that it retains the right the vote.
The Daily Kos community plays a key role in that mass mobilization. By bringing together millions of people in one place through creating and highlighting some of the best progressive content anywhere, we are able to channel those people into political action.
This action includes not just petitions, contacting public officials, and financial contributions to key electoral campaigns, but also the simple act of sharing our community's first-rate analysis of the news of the day.
In an era of corporate dominance both in the news media and on Capitol Hill, it is because of Daily Kos that voices of the progressive grassroots are still heard far and wide. We are an engine for growth and change, and this first 1,000,000 is only the beginning.
