Progressive International

The Progressive International is an international organization uniting progressive left-wing activists and organizations.[1] 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".[2] 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.[2][3] 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.[4]
