|Progressive Voices, the Speakers’ and Performers’ Clearinghouse, is dedicated to providing diverse voices with ideas and solutions critically needed in our global community today.
As a public service to citizens, schools, community organizations and media outlets, we provide access to independent media and to progressive analysts and activists from around the country.
Perhaps you’re a teacher or a producer who needs another point of view on a breaking story from the Middle East which our daily blog often provides. Or you need a speaker who can connect effectively with your audience on issues such as the environment, human rights, foreign policy, and economic justice. We’ll find the right person with the necessary background, analysis and skill to meet your needs.
A dependable and accessible agency with a 25 year history, Progressive Voices promotes speakers and performers addressing the environment, human and civil rights, as well as global, multicultural, media, women and gender issues. Using our extensive databases, we have often set up media interviews for authors doing national book tours such as Reese Erlich, Paul Loeb, Norman Solomon and currently Belva Davis with her autobio Never in My Wildest Dreams.
For schools and community groups, we offer cutting edge lecture and performing artist programs for every budget whether it be for a convocation, orientation or a coffeehouse. As a current associate member of the National Association of Campus Activities (NACA), we are open to and encourage block booking of our programs.
