Washington, D.C. — 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. On Wednesday, November 1—ahead of the one-year anniversary of the 2016 presidential election—the Center for American Progress will host an event to 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 CAP.
