The Center for Progressive Urban Politics stands for working together to build more livable communities. We want to open up the political process for people by informing and supporting policies and candidacies in urban areas. 80.7% of Americans live in urban areas. Given this, there will always be more issues that unite us and drive us forward. Essentially we want:

  • Productive and useful city planning measures to create infrastructure that supports the demands of communities,
  • Implementation of policies that emphasize a stable local economy that can maintain itself and thrive,
  • Cities that work for their citizens. Taxpayer dollars that go towards projects and initiatives that the people want and need, including protecting and maintaining a clean and safe environment.

By putting aside divisive labels such as Democrat vs. Republican and asking what is the most prudent course of action based on common sense, tradition, and moderation, we will make a difference in our local communities, big or small.

As a government of the people we want a country where the interests of the citizens come before corporate interests. To this end we create a variety of content such as blog posts, articles, videos, and podcasts to inform local electorates about the issues that affect them, be they national or local.

On a regular basis, CFPUP will be bringing its audience informative blogs, video logs, and podcasts on a broad range of topics that will include politics, health, the environment, finance, foreign affairs and philosophy.  We look forward to sharing the topics and issues we are passionate about and getting your feedback.

We want you to be a part of something greater. Join us and let’s all get there together.
