The South Carolina Progressive Network is a coalition of organizations and individual activists from across the state who have joined forces to promote social and economic justice in the Palmetto State. Now celebrating 20 years of organizing, the Network was created in 1996 as a tool to engage South Carolinians in their communities and in their government. At its core, the Network is about connecting people to each other and to resources designed to leverage the work of progressive organizations and promote sound public policy.


The purpose of the SC Progressive Network Education Fund is to promote — through education and action — human, civil, and workers’ rights, reproductive freedom, environmental protection, and government reform.


While the Network is member-driven and largely member-funded,  you don’t need to be a member to participate in meetings or other Network events. Our members are comprised of groups and individuals who support our mission statement and pay annual dues based on a sliding scale. To join, download the appropriate form and mail to PO Box 8325, Columbia, SC 29202.
