The inside/outside model of political reform is the organizing method/philosophy being used by the Progressive Democrats of America in its efforts to change the Democratic Party but also to foster a broad grass-roots progressive social and political movement. In essence the inside/outside strategy encourages progressive activists within the Democratic Party and progressive activists who do not work inside the Democratic Party to join together when seeking the election of progressive Democratic Party candidates for office and when advocating, organizing, and lobbying for the passage and enactment of progressive legislation, or the restructuring of governmental budgetary allocations/prioritizations, i.e., amending/limiting the free speech rights of corporations, especially as such rights impact the conduct of free and fair elections, curtailment of the military budget and military spending, and enactment of a universal single payer health care system.
