Founded in 2016, the goal of Progressive Perspectives is to help advance the causes of progressivism in the United States through thoughtful commentary, analysis of politics and statistics, and insightful reporting on the issues facing America.
Progressive Perspectives is helmed by Alex Storer, a progressive college student, activist and political volunteer. He was inspired to get involved in politics by Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign. Originally from Pennsylvania, he lives in Central Florida and has called hundreds of voters and knocked on hundreds of doors for progressive candidates, including during trips to Iowa and South Carolina for Bernie during the 2016 Democratic primary process. In July 2016, he will attend the Democratic National Convention as a delegate pledged to Bernie Sanders.
