Progressive Politics

The progressive left in the United States is harnessing the power of a grassroots political movement to change the way the country thinks about politics. The performance of Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary in the 2016 Presidential Election and subsequent meteoric rise of politicians like Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Elizabeth Warren have demonstrated that ideas that were once considered fringe political ideas are moving into the mainstream. The FES accompanies these political movements acting as an interlocutor and convener of voices from both sides of the Atlantic to promote issues of fairness and equality.
