The Center for American Progress is dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through progressive ideas and action. Building on the achievements of progressive pioneers such as Teddy Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Jr., our work addresses the most pressing 21st century challenges for our nation and our world.
Economic growth must be built on the foundation of a strong and secure middle class so that all Americans benefit from growth.
Democracy is under attack at home and abroad. We must act to ensure it is accessible to all, accountable, and can serve as a force of good.
We apply a racial equity lens in developing and advancing policies that aim to root out entrenched systemic racism to ensure everyone has an opportunity to thrive.
We pursue climate action that meets the crisis’s urgency, creates good-quality jobs, benefits disadvantaged communities, and restores U.S. credibility on the global stage.
We work to strengthen public health systems and improve health care coverage, access, and affordability.
Meaningful solutions and pathways to promote progressive policies occur at all levels of government. Often, local challenges require locally driven solutions that meet the need not only with innovative ideas but also with a deep understanding of the communities involved.
