Progressive Button was set up by Alejandro "Alex" Flores, a politcal campaign director, to offer activists and conscientious people the opportunity to showcase their support to various progressive causes. Whether you're supporting Womens Rights, Immigrant Rights, Environmental Protection, Black Lives Matter or the Anti-Trump movement - there's a button for them all.
Born in Mexico, Alex was brought to California at the age of seven and raised there by his mother, a woman of incredible perseverance and love for her children.Alex found his passion for politics at Santa Ana College. He was twice elected Student Body President, and also expanded his reach beyond campus by working on many state and local campaigns.
When budget cuts in California began to cut into the quality of education at Santa Ana, Alex created the Summer Session Rescue Fund, an account to raise money for classes that were being cut from the schedule due to lack of funds. As an undocumented student himself, Alex used his position to speak out for undocumented students who were being vilified during the budget talks.
In recognition of his accomplishments, the city of Santa Ana named June 2nd 2015 “Alex Flores Day”.
Alex has had the opportunity to lead teams that registered over 10,000 democrat voters in Orange County CA. Today he is a field canvass director for Grassroots Campaigns and has had the opportunity to run voter projects in Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Bronx, Las Vegas, Boston and Denver.
