The Woodstock Progressives promote the democratic principles of liberty, justice, equality, and community at the local, national, and global levels. These principles place human values ahead of corporate demands.

By sponsoring public events and informal gatherings, the Woodstock Progressives bring together concerned citizens to discuss ideas, advocate policies, and participate in electoral politics in support of progressive values, programs, office-holders, and candidates. The goal of the Woodstock Progressives is to help citizens have a greater impact on town affairs as a way of advancing changes in the larger society.

The Woodstock Progressives are not affiliated with any political party. All are welcome to participate.
