A Short survey on Progressive Priorities

Filed under: — site admin @ 8:37 pm

Hello, fellow Progressive.

As part of DemocracyFest 2005, LFT would like to invite you to take part in the Latinos for Texas sponsored Progressive Message Survey at

Despite the rise in popularity of framing workshops and think-tanks, progressives have not been able to agree on a set of core talking points to communicate the progressive message to the voting masses. This is due less to general disagreement among progressives than to a lack of consolidation of our progressive Values.

While we don’t all agree on every issue, and regional concerns will always be important, it is time to establish a core set of principles that can be communicated concisely and effectively.

Help us create a unified progressive message by participating in our short 10-minute survey. All of your responses are strictly confidential and are used only in an aggregate fashion.

For a continuation of this discussion, join us at DemocracyFest 2005 in Austin, Texas to take part in our discussion of initial results and continued deliberation. To register for DemocracyFest 2005 please visit

If you would like to invite friends to participate in LFT’s Progressive Message Survey, simply email them the following link:

Thanks in advance for participating. Together, we can take our country back!

Warm regards,
