About the California Office

American Progress opened its first office outside of D.C. in California in 2007. American Progress’s mission in California is to advance and support a progressive national policy agenda and lay out our vision of a progressive America on the West Coast. The initial goals of the California office are to: 1) Broaden American Progress’s policy development by drawing on ideas from California, a state often at the forefront of progressive policy 2) Develop relationships with and actively engage influential audiences who shape the public and policy debate 3) Broaden awareness of American Progress and our progressive vision to help build a robust progressive movement beyond the beltway 4) Expand American Progress’s donor base to ensure that we are building lasting institutional support for progressive change
