Progressive Caucus

Purpose and Goals

  • We support Progressive candidates for office
  • We support voting rights and bringing new voters into the party
  • We are committed to doing outreach in our local community
  • We champion Progressive causes
  • We support the Iowa Democratic Party’s Progressive Caucus


The Progressive Caucus of Linn County (est. July 2018) is a constituency caucus of The Linn County Democrats Central Committee (Linn County, Iowa). It is currently the only county chapter of The Progressive Caucus of the Iowa Democratic Party. As a constituency based on ideological belief and not ethnicity or personal identity, we are an intersectional community and welcome all interested in ‘encouraging’ the Democratic Party to embrace candidates, causes, and policies that align with The Progressive Movement. Our rules state you must be a registered Democrat residing in Linn County, IA, to be an officer or voting member, but anyone may participate in all group activities as an observing member.

Our meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of every month at 6pm.  They typically last between 1.5 to 2 hours. Currently we meet online via Google Meet video conference with a phone call-in option. Remote meetings will continue until further notice.

Our in-person meeting location in the past has been:
Karma Coffee Cafe
1725 Boyson Road, Hiawatha, IA 52233
