PPro has a wide and growing network of progressive Princeton alumni, faculty, staff, friends and family. This subset of the “greater Princeton community” provides opportunities on both the local and national level to support candidates who share our values and goals.
Since Princeton alumni are at the core of PPro, we track progressive alumni around the country running for positions at all levels of government. We publish their names and information about them on our website. We encourage you to notify us if we have neglected to include anyone who should be on the list.
As a result of both our broad mission and our inclusive membership and network, we also see value in connecting this network to progressive candidates who are not alumni in various ways:
- Gatherings—both small and large—for our network to meet candidates
- Issuing endorsements of candidates
- Organizing groups of members and others to canvass or provide other campaign support
- Distributing information about candidates to our network
In 2018, PPro members attended events to support progressive candidates and organized volunteers to work on red-to-blue campaigns in the NJ-NYC area, including for Andy Kim in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District.
