A new coalition of most powerful progressive organizations has united to push the Senate to pass the Protecting the Right to Organize Act. The grassroots group, the Worker Power Coalition, is made up of 40 of the most powerful progressive organizations in the United States, across a broad spectrum of issues, including racial justice, electoral politics, environmental activism. Among them, the Working Families Party, MoveOn, Indivisible, the Sunrise Movement, the Sierra Club, and the Democratic Socialists of America. 

AOC is a leader of the nation’s progressive leadership, listen to her speak to CNN’s Don Lemon last week:

The Worker Power Coalition has committed to lobbying efforts in Washington DC, actions throughout the summer, and a six-figure digital ad buy. The announcement arrives Thursday as the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions meets for a hearing on the PRO Act and how to turn it into law.
