The Progressive Alliance (Dellish: Progressyf Alliânsje, Weranian: Progressive Allianz, Swathish: Progrvẹrcic Vyncynn, Kirenian: Progressiivne liit) also commonly referred to as the Progressives or the Alliance, is a social-democratic centre-left political party in Alsland. The Alliance is a member of the Socialist Alternative for Euclea. The Alliance is the second largest party in the Folkssenaat with 35 out of 201 seats.

The Progressive Alliance was founded on 9 February 2006 by centre-left members of the Workers' Party who disagreed with the party's shift towards the left and merger with the Alslandic Section of the Workers' International. It is the largest political alliance of the 'Socialist' pillar of Alslandic society. Since 2011 the Alliance has moved closer towards adopting centrist positions and has a large and influential social liberal wing. Since 2017 the party has been led by Ottila Möller - the daughter of Per Schnyder who was one of the main founders of the Alliance. It has close links to the Democratic Federation of Alslandic Labour, the second largest trade union in Alsland. The PA is a supporter of Alslandic membership in the Euclean Community, since 2010 it has been a coalition partner of Liveable Alsland, the National Bloc and the Humanist Sotirian Union.

The party won only 7 seats at the 2006 legislative election and sat with other centre-right parties in opposition to the Nieuwenhuis coalition. One of the party's founders — Bonne Zijlstra — became the first President of the Euclean Community in 2007. The Alliance also became the second largest party after the 2009 municipal elections. At the 2018 legislative election the party grew it's number of seats from 10 to 35 and won 18.5% of the popular vote.
