Barack Obama, a liberal-leaning centrist Democrat was elected with the energetic support of progressive activists. Post-election enthusiasm remains high amongst progressives who believe that President Obama may be in a position to redefine the political center in just the way that Franklin Roosevelt did.

Mike Lux, author of the new book “The Progressive Revolution” offers a history and road map for progressives to support a new “Big Change Moment” in our nations’ history. Comparable “Big Change Moments” include the ending of slavery, giving women the right to vote, painstaking enactment of civil rights laws, the adoption of Social Security, and strengthening the middle class. Lux argues that we are on the cusp of a new Big Change Moment, and we need to know our history to fully embrace the upcoming change.

Mike will share examples of American history that lend lessons to current progressive policies, and how they may be channeled to solve the critical problems facing America today.

Mike Lux’s new book, “The Progressive Revolution” will be available for purchase.
