About Us

Progressive Social Network (PSN) is a grassroots community advocacy group promoting a progressive agenda in the greater Baton Rouge area. We offer opportunities for members to get involved through regular meetings, issues based committees, participating in community improvement initiatives, direct political actions such as rallies and vigils, as well as community building and dialogue events.

Our Philosophy

The progressive agenda that PSN promotes is guided by three main principles:

Equity

We believe that decisionmaking focused on fairness and the acknowledgement of systemic disadvantages leads to equality of outcomes.

Inclusion

We believe in intentionally building coalitions that deliberately cross lines of race, gender, sexuality, religion, and political affiliation.

Accountability

We believe that respectful dissent is a necessary and important component in holding ourselves, our institutions, and our community and political leaders to the highest possible standards.
