Our Mission

To produce pop culture content that will increase progressive civic participation with the goal of making the United States a more equitable society—ultimately to help the American Dream, where everyone has a fair opportunity to succeed, become a reality. 

That means empowering individuals to take meaningful actions to advance racial justice, economic justice, reproductive justice, LGBTQ justice, gender justice, and climate justice, and to directly remedy centuries of inequitable systems  and policies.

About Us

ProgressPop is a nonprofit news organization providing our audience with reporting on a wide range of national issues reflecting the intersection of pop culture and current events. We focus on stories that make life POP.

We meet our audience where they are, with news covering the wide range of who they are, understanding that what makes us diverse is not just our communities, but the varied interests of each individual, as well.

You love the latest on your horoscope just as much as you love a bite-sized, easy-to-understand explainer of governmental policy. We keep you in-the-know about all the news that matters to you—BIG names, BIG stories, and BIG fun.
