THE DRIVING FORCE FOR CHANGE
The Congressional Progressive Caucus Center (CPCC) is an outside entity that will leverage the power of the Congressional Progressive Caucus by creating critically needed infrastructure within the progressive community.
The Center will be the bridge that links the CPC with progressive stakeholders and will provide cutting edge policy analysis and message guidance to the broader progressive community to help drive progressive ideas and reforms into the public debate.
Congress’ priorities must be informed by a direct connection to the people who have elected their representatives to office.
By working with outside partners - advocacy groups, labor unions, and think tanks - we will provide resources outlining the interests of the American people. The CPCC will convene different progressive stakeholders to advance cutting-edge, independent policy analysis and most importantly, work to realize the enactment of progressive policies - which are overwhelmingly supported by the American people.

THE WASHINGTON POST
“Only in the darkness can you see the stars,” the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. taught us. Now, even in the bleak night of Brett M. Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, there are stars that offer hope. If Democrats take back the House in next month’s elections, the Congressional Progressive Caucus — already one of the largest and most diverse values-based caucus in the Congress — will make certain it won’t be business as usual. The CPC will have the leaders, even greater numbers, a compelling reform agenda and increasing institutional muscle to drive the debate — while exposing the corrosive corruption that pervades every corner of the Trump administration.
