PCCC - Progressive Change Campaign Committee

We can put a check on Trump's power by winning back Congress

These are some of the most significant progressive candidates of color running for office in America.


REVEREND GREG EDWARDS - U.S. HOUSE – PENNSYLVANIA (PA-15)

Greg is a pastor and community leader who was just arrested in the Capitol protesting the horrific tax bill. The primary is crowded with other Democrats, and Greg has pledged not to accept corporate contributions, so every dollar counts. His primary is May 15.


DONNA EDWARDS -- COUNTY EXECUTIVE - PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, MARYLAND

Donna is a lifelong organizer, community leader, mom, and former congresswoman with a record of taking on special interests. She's fighting to modernize aging infrastructure, move more money into classrooms, and bring jobs and opportunity back home. Her primary is on June 26.


VERONICA ESCOBAR - U.S. HOUSE – TEXAS (TX-13)

Veronica is running in a primary for a Democratic open seat in Texas. She has a long record of progressive action as a County Commissioner and County Judge. She took on the local police chief when he called Black Lives Matter “a radical hate group,” and sued the state of Texas over a bill that would have allowed local police officers to become de facto border patrol agents. Her primary is March 6.


ANDY KIM - U.S. HOUSE – NEW JERSEY (NJ-03)

Andy is the son of immigrants, a Rhodes Scholar, and a diplomat, spending his early career as a strategic Pentagon advisor on the war against ISIS. He is running against Republican Tom MacArthur, who led the congressional push for Trump’s terrible health care proposal.


REP. PRAMILA JAYAPAL - U.S. HOUSE – WASHINGTON (WA-07)

Pramila has spent the last 25 years as a Seattle organizer and activist — leading the charge for a $15 minimum wage, founding an immigrant rights’ organization, and passing legislation to help rape survivors. In 2016, she was elected to succeed retiring Congressman Jim McDermott, a huge progressive champion.


REP. NANETTE BARRAGÁN - U.S. HOUSE – CALIFORNIA (CA-44)

The youngest of 11 children born to Mexican immigrants, Nanette has dedicated her legal career to helping communities like her own. As the first-ever Latina elected to the Hermosa Beach City Council, Barragán prioritized bold progressives values, including leading the fight against oil drilling in Santa Monica Bay.


REP. RUBEN GALLEGO - U.S. HOUSE - ARIZONA (AZ-07)

Ruben is an Iraq veteran who worked to increase the number of Latino voters and led fights for worker rights, immigration reform, marijuana legalization, and marriage equality before coming to Congress in 2014. He supports a constitutional amendment overturning Citizens United, expanding Social Security benefits, and taking on the student debt crisis. On January 22, Ruben and the PCCC will host a massive rally in Arizona to tell the media, the Republican party, and Joe Arpaio himself that Arpaio does NOT belong in the Senate. He belongs in jail!


REP. KEITH ELLISON - U.S. HOUSE – MINNESOTA (MN-05)

Keith Ellison has never wavered from the four key priorities he first ran on: peace, prosperity for working families, environmental sustainability, and support for civil and human rights. As Co-Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, he's one of the most progressive members of Congress, pushing fundamental legislation like the People's Budget and advocating for our nation’s working families.


ATTICA SCOTT - KENTUCKY HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES – DISTRICT 41

Attica has been a grassroots partner to the PCCC for years, culminating in our joint press conference at Senator McConnell's Kentucky office demanding that he ‘do his job’ and allow a vote on President Obama's Supreme Court nominee. She is an activist, community leader, and a mother who prioritizes protecting women's rights, workers' rights, and fair wages in the Kentucky State Legislature.
