Mission Statement
Political Scrutiny 101’s mission is to support progressive champions. We accomplish this by identifying and recruiting the best progressive leaders to run for office; supporting their candidacies; prioritizing bringing new people into the political process at all levels.

Agenda
Economic Justice: Prosperity should be accessible to everyone, not merely the few....
Civil Rights: Every individual's civil rights must be protected; discrimination and harassment based     on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or physical and developmental ability should be banned.
Health Care: Every individual should have affordable, quality health care.
Education: It is essential that we invest in quality public education for all.
Environment: We must commit to restoring and protecting our environment.
Reproductive Freedom: Women and men - not politicians - deserve the right to make personal decisions about their reproductive health in accordance with their own personal and moral beliefs.
