Building PROGRESSIVE Power in America

 

THE DRIVING FORCE FOR CHANGE

The Congressional Progressive Caucus Center (CPC Center) 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 is a bridge that links the progressive caucus with the broader progressive movement. We bring community leaders, organizers, advocates, unions and policy experts together to build people-led cutting edge policy, message guidance and a unified strategy to drive progressive ideas and reforms into the public debate.

OUR WORK

The CPC Center is dedicated to making sure the voices of the people on the front lines are heard in Congress.

By working with outside partners - community organizers, advocacy groups, labor unions, and think tanks - we provide resources outlining the interests of the American people. The CPC Center convenes progressive stakeholders from across our movement to advance cutting-edge, independent policy analysis and most importantly, work to pass progressive policies that make a difference in people’s everyday lives.

$15 Minimum Wage Must be the Law of the Land

Progressive Caucus Launches Center for Policy Development, Outreach

ROLL CALL

The Congressional Progressive Caucus on Tuesday announced the launch of a center that will coordinate progressive policy development, messaging and outreach inside and outside Congress. 

The center is not yet fully operational, but it starts off with a board of directors that has spent the past four and a half months raising money to fund staff for next year.

Congressional progressives get their own center

CNN

The Congressional Progressive Caucus unveiled a new policy center Tuesday, aiming to strengthen the already largest bloc of House Democrats in anticipation of the House majority flipping after the midterms.

With 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) components, the center -- which is named the Congressional Progressive Caucus Center -- will work to align messaging and policy initiatives between progressive outside groups and progressive members of Congress — a strategy that those on the left say will help leverage their power next year.

A blue wave next month could be the start of a progressive sea change

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.
