Based in Seattle, Washington Progressive Millennials for Action is an organization that seeks to empower the millennial generation through awareness, service, and direct action. Millennials are very important to the social and political change in America. However, we have been alienated and ignored by many political leaders. PMFA is an organization that was created to assist in mobilizing Millennials and Generation Z. We believe that it is important that we create representations for ourselves within our own organization. PMFA also believe that all human beings have the responsibility to engage and solve many of our own social, environmental, and economic problem ourselves without waiting for the federal government.
We believe in empowering people within our own communities and that millennials can assist in creating the kind of change in our communities that can be more effective than many federal programs. PMFA believes that the U.S. federal government has always worked as incrementalist when it comes to social change. The time has come when citizens in the United States and across the global have to take our problems into our own hands to create the changes we believe in.
PMFA creates action through a three step process; the first step of action is to identify the problem. This may seem like the obvious first step, which it is, but at PMFA we thrive to flush out the root of a problem. In American politics many of our political leaders can identify many problems in the United States but they fail at figuring out the many layers of most of the problems we face. As a result, we need to band together to find solutions for the many issues that exist in our society because our leaders are not always willing to figure out mutually beneficial solutions. The second step of PMFA after finding the root cause of a problem is to come up with practical and creative solutions that will better serve the people. The third step to the process is activism; this is putting our theories of solution into action.
We have three types of activism in Progressive Millennials for Action. The first type is awareness. We believe in drawing attention to the social issues that exists in our society and the best way to do that is through education. We believe in empowering our community through education. The second step is community service. It is important for millennials to give back to their communities. We provide various opportunities for millennials to engage in community service. The final step is through direct action. We are versatile in the way we engage in direct action. The main goal is to get the attention of our political figures and move them to think outside of themselves and actually listen to their constituents.
