The 2016 Election: One Year Out

President Donald Trump’s divisiveness has given rise to a new awakening of progressive policy and activism. More and more advocates, organizers, leaders, and other progressive voices are fighting to protect past progressive achievements. This event will explore the overarching political themes from the past year, noting how much the world has changed and how people have moved on issues they care about. The event will also feature the release of a major new report, “Voter Trends in 2016: The Final Verdict,” examining the most important demographic and voting patterns that shaped the 2016 election based on a comprehensive new data set constructed by the Center for American Progress. Please join us for this in-depth look into the past year’s politics and policy.
