On March 8, 2011, Tim Judson, Workers' Rights Policy Specialist for
Progressive States Network, joined workers from Wisconsin, Ohio, and
Indiana and experts from around the nation in testifying at a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee hearing
state-by-state assault on workers and the middle class, calling the
attacks "a full-scale campaign to dismantle the very foundations of
America’s social and moral progress over the last century," and
highlighting the responsible, progressive alternatives being advanced in
the states that aim to "shore up working families, get people back to
work, and sustain vital public services and infrastructure".
If you’re planning to attend the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Legislative Summit in Louisville, Kentucky next week, be sure to visit Progressive States Network at our exhibit hall booth (#701) and at our several hosted events.
The Good Jobs, Green Jobs National Conference took place May 4-6 in Washington, DC, gathering thousands of union members, environmentalists, business and community leaders, and elected and administration officials to invest, innovate and take action to create good, clean energy jobs as we preserve America’s economic and environmental security.

Limited to a select group of 50 progressive state legislators, the
Legislative Leadership Retreat will be a unique event, unlike typical
conferences. First and foremost, Progressive States Network (PSN) has
organized this Retreat to strengthen the state progressive movement. By
giving forward-thinking state lawmakers the opportunity to meet and
form lasting bonds with their peers and gain important insights,
lessons, and best practices to guide their work back home, we aim to
fortify our collective commitment to delivering progressive change in
our statehouses, thereby reforming America’s politics and advancing the
policies our country so desperately needs.
