10 Years Making Progress: The First Decade of CAP/CAP Action and the Transformation of the American Left

A discussion with:

Neera Tanden, John Podesta, and Tom Perriello

Ten years ago this month, the Center for American Progress and Center for American Progress Action Fund officially opened their doors with the ambitious goal of uniting a new generation of Americans behind a progressive vision for the future built upon equality, justice, and opportunity for all. Created at a time of rising conservatism in American politics, American Progress has played a major role in developing alternative policies and strategies for governing the country. From a comprehensive plan for achieving universal health care coverage and a new middle-out economic-growth model to a concrete strategies to end the war in Iraq and address global climate change, American Progress has been at the forefront of critical transformations in government and society over the past decade.

Join us for a special discussion with the founders and current leaders of American Progress—Neera Tanden, John Podesta, and Tom Perriello—as we explore the policies, strategies, and advances in organizing and communications over the past decade that have helped to build a more powerful and coherent progressive movement.
