About Us

A MoveOn Council is a local team of committed MoveOn members who organize in their community to build a base of active participants, develop leadership among MoveOn council members, and work in coordination with the national MoveOn Council network to win campaigns on issues that are important to MoveOn’s 5 million members.

The MoveOn Council network works on national campaigns to push for the progressive change that our country needs.  We are a strong, independent voice to keep Congress and the President honest when lobbyists and corporations stand in the way of progress. We:

  • Shape the political playing field on the big issues by organizing in our communities, doing direct advocacy with elected officials, and getting our message out into the local and national media.
  • Put direct pressure on Congress to win key victories, like our recent success with health care reform, by lobbying our elected officials in their hometowns and pressing them to vote for a progressive agenda.
  • Organize broader, deeper and smarter than ever to build long-term power and achieve real progressive change.  We build the leadership and train the grassroots base of the progressive movement.
