IS ALL ABOUT
If you’ve ever asked yourself any of the questions below, you’re in the right place.
“Why aren’t my values being represented in government?”
“How can I communicate to others the issues that are important to me?”
“Why can’t we have a clearer picture of what it means to be progressive?”
“How can I create real and lasting change”
“How can I convince people to listen to me?”
WHAT TO EXPECT
POWERFUL IDEAS FROM THE BEST MINDS
IN JUST 5 MINUTES
We believe the big ideas in America are worth fighting for. In today’s overcrowded marketplace of noise, progressives MUST become master communicators, storytellers, and champions for our American values.
How can you find the time to do this while working a full-time job, running a business, raising a family? Instead of digging through hundreds of books, thousands of academic research papers, and wasting time on strategies by so-called “experts”, watch our videos and subscribe to Progressive Labs (it’s free).

Through short and well-reasoned videos, we help people understand the fundamental values that have created a prosperous America for everyone. Progressive Labs is a resource for every American for understanding and explaining the common values we share.
We take the best ideas from the best minds and distill them down to five focused minutes. We then add graphics and animation to create the most persuasive, entertaining, and educational case possible for the values that have made America and the West the source of so much prosperity. These values include the concepts of freedom of speech, fair markets, and a commitment to protect and project those values.
