What are the Progressive Citizens Seven Principles?

* We fight for SOCIAL JUSTICE as a key component for the development of civil society in every country in the world. It includes economic justice, racial justice, and environmental justice. We are for AUTHENTICITY and INTEGRITY as a fundamental component of Progress.

* We will never stop fighting for this PLANET. A healthy and sustainable environment is one of our top priorities. The real conflict is not “profit vs planet” and “neoliberalism vs ecology“. A sick Planet does not allow the healthy and comprehensive development of human beings.

* We are against any form of OPPRESSION. We fight for the vulnerable and underprivileged, the sick and powerless, and everyone that is marginalized by existing power structures. We are against DISCRIMINATION as a form of oppression.

* We are for DEMOCRACY as the constant pursuit of civic engagement and public involvement in the direction of social progress. We are for TRANSPARENCY and for real ACCOUNTABILITY of those in power. We fight to get Big Money out of the political process and to reform the electoral process in every country so that people can elect those who are the best fit to serve and not simply the powerful. We support FREEDOM OF SPEECH and a free & responsible media, whose main purpose is to combine transparency, accountability, and education.

* We are against the CONCENTRATION of WEALTH & POWER in the hands of the few at the expense of the many. We fight for a LIVING WAGE that allows access to life-essential goods and services. And we fundamentally oppose the mass PRIVATIZATION of those things that should be a right not a privilege, like Healthcare and Education.

* We fight POVERTY and SOCIAL EXCLUSION as the main exponents of social predation and regression. They are a denial of choices, opportunities, and a real capacity to effectively participate in society. And a violation of human dignity.

* We believe in a more inclusive SOLIDARITY because, even when it is impossible to agree on every single thing, most of our interests as human beings are shared interests, and progress is not possible if we do not stand together on the issues that matter.

Notes to Our Terms & Conditions

We all know that website Terms and Conditions (T&Cs) are important, but truthfully how many of us actually take the time to read them thoroughly?

Since October 2015, you have a legal right to expect fair and transparent T&Cs. This means that “critical information” needs to be clear, prominent, and easy to understand.

With that said, let’s emphasize a few points:

* Progressive Citizens is a private network. We reserve the right to admit and keep on our web portal only those persons who fully meet or come close to the commonly accepted definition of PROGRESSIVE. In case you do not meet these requirements, or in some way violate the established, your account will be suspended.

* After accessing the website for the first time you must go to your Profile and upload a personal photo (a photo of yourself that CLEARLY shows your face). We are a community of people who are proud to be progressive and as members, we must feel confident that we are dealing with real people.

* Once you are accepted into the network, you have the possibility to invite other people. Please EXCLUSIVELY invite progressive people, who can collaborate with our efforts and who feel comfortable in the digital company of people with more or less similar ideas and projects.

* RULES and RESTRICTIONS on Submissions and Interactions:

  1. Our Members (individuals and organizations) should exercise common sense and courtesy in submitting comments or materials for posting on Progressive Citizens environments (“Submissions”). Be kind and courteous, do not use hate speech or bullying, and respect everyone’s privacy.
  2. Inappropriate Submissions would include, for example, comments or materials that:
    1. make false or defamatory statements about others;
    2. are obscene, vulgar, abusive, hateful, or threatening;
    3. harass or discriminate on the basis of race, religion, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexual preference, or other factors;
    4. are invasive of the privacy rights of others (e.g., by including addresses, phone numbers, or other personal information about third persons without their consent.)
  3. Submissions may not include content or materials that violate the copyrights, trademark rights, or other intellectual property rights of third parties.
  4. Submissions may not contain unauthorized disclosures of proprietary or confidential information.
  5. Our Members may not use Progressive Citizens environments, features, and functionalities in a manner or for a purpose that could violate any national or international laws.
  6. Our Members may not use Progressive Citizens to promote or provide instructional information about illegal activities or for any purpose that may be illegal.
  7. Members Submissions & Interactions may not contain comments or materials supporting any conservatives, openly anti-progressives candidates for political office, or otherwise engage in political activity inconsistent with Progressive Citizen’s purposes.
  8. Submissions may not include false or misleading representations of affiliation with any other person or entity. A Member may not employ false identifiers to impersonate any person or entity or to misrepresent or disguise the true origin of any content.
  9. Progressive Citizens believe that anonymous postings are neither necessary for purposes of this platform, nor consistent with the level of dialogue expected. Therefore, the Member’s username (which must be provided) will be posted with the Submission. To the extent that a group of individuals, the group name shall be identified in connection with the posting. It is not necessary, however, to identify each individual member of the group associated with the group posting, apart from the identification of individuals in the attribution of quotes made in a posting.
  10. Do not talk about RELIGION within Progressive Citizens’ environments. We do not want our diverse religions, beliefs, creeds, and life philosophies to separate us or distract us from the ultimate goal.

Progressive Citizens Membership Benefits

When you become a member, you become a part of the dynamic changes that are transforming our world.

* Connecting with people who think in a similar way, will allow you access to all kinds of resources: to empower your progressive organization, to enrich your life, grow your business, achieve your personal goals, etc. Try to make introductions when you see fit, as members will typically be more willing to help if they see you are actively trying to benefit the community as well.

* Opportunities to influence policies on issues you care about. We are establishing collaboration with many national and international organizations to collectively advance our shared goals and enhance our opportunities for personal/professional development, networking, and advocacy.

* The fight for progress, for what is fair and for improving the world, can sometimes seem like a lonely endeavor. Talking with a mutually-supportive, like-minded network of people, and participating in events, virtually or in the real world, can help you improve your mood and get new ideas.

* Being a progressive person, you can publish your ideas, questions, and suggestions without censorship, and without fear of malicious people reporting and blocking you, as it happens in the main social networks. Our members can interact in protected, secure virtual environments.

* This can help you find new employment and/or new business opportunities. People like to work together or do business with a familiar face, even more, if they share interests and values.

* The greatest value in joining Progressive Citizens comes from the fact that when you engage with other Progressive people, you can find unlimited inspiration. Through active discussions, you will learn from each others’ mistakes, get motivated by each other’s victories, and give and receive much-needed support. Not to mention, that the collaborations that come to fruition thanks to community engagement can yield fresh, exciting innovations that simply can’t be achieved solo.

What are Progressive Citizens Core Features?

  • Members can create and update profiles, including the use of profile and cover photos.
  • Members can befriend one another (connections).
  • Members can send private messages. Progressive Citizens comes with a robust private messaging system. Users can choose whether or not to receive an email notification when someone sends them a message.
  • Members can join and create groups. Most generic groups (by country or by profession, like “Progressive Citizens United States” or “Progressive Citizens Government Employees“, are created by Admins in order to prevent the extraordinary “spraying” of other social networks. Groups can be used for a wide range of functions within the website.
  • Members can post, comment, edit, or delete several kinds of posts on the activity streams and follow other users. Progressive Citizens activity streams provide a quick digest of the recent activity going on within the site or with regard to a particular user.
  • Members can create blogs. Progressive Citizens gives administrators and users a full-featured online publishing platform.
  • Members can participate in forum discussions. Instead of posting one thing after another in groups, which is usually lost in the news feed speed, we encourage group members to create discussions on relevant topics and others comment on it so that everything that is published is very well organized and can be followed up.
  • Members can create projects and properly organize & track all tasks and projects. We have included advanced time management tools for efficient time tracking and we have made team collaboration more effective than ever. You can get advanced reports for full insights about everything.

What are ProgreCit Planned Improvements?

We are just starting. Over the next few months, we will have the following features and/or sections:

Zoom Conference: The ability to create and host Zoom meetings from groups, with a list of upcoming and past Zoom recordings. We will also let you create Zoom meetings and view recordings via a Gutenberg block that can easily be placed into pages and course content.

Donations: We are working on allowing members to have fundraising campaigns within Progresive Citizens Network.

Messages – Live Loading: We want our Messenger to update in real-time, similar to iMessage and WhatsApp. This will make our messenger much more responsive and will allow us to extend it later on with a live chatbox on the site that is in sync with the messenger.

Polls: We plan to add the ability to publish polls into activity feeds, for other members to vote on and then view the results.

Hashtags: We plan to add support for #hashtags in the activity feed, allowing members to create their own hashtags and use them in posts to create trending activity.

Schedule Posts: Before the end of the year, we plan to allow Progressive Citizens to create activity posts, which are set to be published at a specific date in the future instead of immediately.

Progressive Citizens Directory: We pretend to create the largest Progressives Organizations Directory on the web.

Progressive Citizens Real Estate: a whole sub-website to facilitate our members to buy and sell houses.

… And much more.

What kind of Groups can I create? Not generic.

As the powerful have done for centuries, Facebook and other social networks divide us at the highest level, in an effort to “pulverize” the possibility of joint actions. At Progressive Citizens, we are creating a limited number of “Generic Groups” by country, professions, interests, etc.

If you search Facebook for groups related to Bernie Sanders, for example, you will find dozens, perhaps hundreds of them, and their members do not communicate properly with each other (sometimes never). In Progressive Citizens, there can be a single group of “Followers of Bernie Sanders” and within it, hundreds or thousands of groups, such as “Followers of Bernie Sanders in Florida“, “Followers of Bernie Sanders in California” or “Followers of Bernie Sanders in the UK“.

The same happens with professions or interests. In our case, for example, there will be only one group of “Progressive Teachers” (so that everyone starts talking to each other) and then there may be “Progressive Teachers Argentina” or “Progressive Teachers Malaysia“, as there may also be “Progressive Teachers in Florida” and “Progressive Teachers in Paris“; or “Progressive Latino Teachers in the USA” or “Progressive French Teachers in Italy“.

The message is that we are free to create as many groups as we want as long as there is a “generic” group that unites us all. That is the keyword: “UNITY within diversity“. The powerful have always understood very well that “Divide and Conquer“. We have to understand that only “United We Win“.
