National Progressive League [r]: The National Progressive League was a political action committee in the United States organized by former progressives to support the Democratic Party nominee Franklin D. Roosevelt for president.

The league was organized by George Norris and leading progressives joined such as Harold Ickes, Fred Howe, Felix Frankfurter, Donald Richberg, Edward P. Costigan, Grace Abbott, Peter Witt, Paul D. Kellogg, and Amos Pinchot.

This group disbanded following the 1932 election.

Norris formed a similar group for the 1936 election called the Progressive National Committee. [e]
