Upcoming Events

The Center for American Progress is continually monitoring the development and impact of the global spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. The safety and well-being of our panelists and audiences are of the utmost importance to us.

Out of an abundance of caution, all upcoming public events at the Center for American Progress will only be available via an online livestream. Please RSVP to be reminded to watch live on the specific event page. Viewers are welcome to submit audience questions to each event and will be notified of individual event hashtags after they RSVP. As always, we will continue to live caption our event livestreams so that they remain accessible to all.


Climate Disclosure Standards

Please join the Center for American Progress, the Consumer Federation of America, and the UC Hastings Center for Innovation for a panel discussion on the legal and policy merits of SEC deference to third-party ESG standard setters.
