The Progressive International is an international organization uniting progressive left-wing activists and organizations. Its main proponents are Bernie Sanders and Yanis Varoufakis and it was launched by The Sanders Institute and DiEM25. Varoufakis, a co-founder of DiEM25, said in an op-ed that the Progressive International is created "to mobilize people around the world to transform the global order and the institutions that shape it". The Progressive International was launched on 30 November 2018 at a Sanders Institute event attended by many progressive politicians, economists and activists including Naomi Klein, Cornel West, Fernando Haddad, Jeffrey Sachs, Niki Ashton and Ada Colau. Some of the project's promotional videos were produced by Means of Production, the studio behind the campaign ad for American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
