Washington, D.C. — The Center for American Progress has announced that Danyelle Solomon will join the organization as Director of Progress 2050. In this role, she will lead American Progress’ efforts to develop and analyze public policies that affect communities of color. This work is especially critical as demographic changes move the United States toward becoming a nation with no clear racial or ethnic majority by 2050. This transition provides the progressive movement with a critical opportunity to help America live up to its ideals of equality and justice for all.
“The mission of Progress 2050 is to inspire progressive policy and to educate Americans about the changing face of the nation. Danyelle’s experience and vision will be instrumental to ensuring success of the project, and I am thrilled to welcome her on board,” said Carmel Martin, Executive Vice President for Policy at CAP.
Solomon most recently worked at the Brennan Center for Justice, where she served as policy council for all criminal justice and democracy initiatives. In 2010, she served as legislative counsel at the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy within the Office of Legislative Affairs. Solomon also served as counsel to Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin (D-MD), chairman of the Terrorism and Homeland Security Subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee. She is a graduate of the University of Miami and holds a J.D. from the Dickinson School of Law at Pennsylvania State University.
