Building PROGRESSIVE Power in America



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.


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.
