The 2017 Ideas Conference

A Center for American Progress Signature Event

While it’s early in the Trump administration, it’s clear that progressives will need to resist and respond aggressively every single day. Charting a path for progressives in 2017 and into the future is one of our highest priorities at the Center for American Progress. The Ideas Conference—our signature event of the year—brings together leading elected officials, thought leaders, movement leaders, and others to discuss their ideas to move the country forward and address the needs of all Americans, covering topics from economics to energy, national security to the rise of the Resist movement.
