About the Chamber of Progress
The Chamber of Progress (progresschamber.org) is a new center-left tech policy industry coalition working to help usher in a progressive high-tech future and ensure that all Americans benefit from technological leaps.
We’re not just another business group. Everyone knows that a local “chamber of commerce” promotes business and free markets. We’re an industry group, but instead of focusing on commerce, the Chamber of Progress is promoting a progressive high-tech society, economy, workforce, and consumer climate.
The Chamber of Progress backs public policies promoting:
- Economic progress, including combatting income inequality; promoting a bigger, modern social safety net; encouraging progressive taxation; and supporting reliable, win-win online marketplaces;
- Social progress, including promoting inclusive democracy; supporting bold action against climate change; promoting digital opportunity for all; and advocating for healthy and equitable online communities.
- Consumer progress, including promoting the principle that tech should always serve consumers’ interests; “building back better” by investing in communities and regulated innovation; increasing access to goods and information; and balancing consumer and worker concerns.
The Chamber of Progress is supported by leading technology companies, but no partner companies sit on the organization’s board of directors, and the organization will remain true to its stated principles even when its partners disagree.
