What does Progressive mean?


noun [ U ]


‘A social or political movement aiming to represent the interests of ordinary people through political change and the support of government actions’

The best definition aligned to our philosophy is ‘the idea of progress, which asserts advancements in science, technology, economic development and social organisation vital to the improvement of the human condition.’

As Progressives, our aim is to help society move forward through empowerment, evidence and empathy to create the best possible future for all Australians. We think outside the box and embrace innovation so our society, and everyone in it, can have the highest possible equality of opportunity, prosperity and a safe sustainable future.

We will continue to engage individuals and organisations focused on ethical and integrity-driven thought and action, and to apply evidenced-based policies where every participant in the Australian democratic process is equal to the next.
