About Us

The Santa Barbara Progressive Coalition is a local marketplace for progressive groups and individuals to hold space, network, and share resources to promote action that will create positive change for our community, California, and the United States.


  • Organize direct local actions to resist the threats posed to marginalized people like Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in our Santa Barbara community by white supremacy and far right extremism
  • Participate in grassroots efforts to resist and remove the Trump administration and its enablers at the ballot box in local, state, and federal elections in 2018 and 2020
  • Establish an inclusive space for  progressive organizations to share resources and recruit & enable intersectional community activism
  • Advance the progressive values of diversity, inclusive communities, economic justice, environmental protection, affordable health care and women’s reproductive health, immigrant rights, LGBTQ+ rights, public education, voting integrity and political reform, anti-corruption in government and politics, housing justice and tenant’s rights, and protecting the Bill of Rights
  • Support each other and build community power
