Center for American Progress

The Center for American Progress (CAP) is an independent nonpartisan policy institute that is dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans, through bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action. Its aim is not just to change the conversation, but to change the country.

Tapping the resources and talents of an extensive group of experts CAP develops new policy ideas, challenges the media to cover the issues that truly matter, and helps to shape the national debate. With policy teams in major issue areas, CAP can think creatively at the cross-section of traditional boundaries to develop ideas for policy makers that lead to real change.

CAP reaches policy makers, influencers, government officials , academicians, the business community and the general public by holding public events and issuing news alerts and newsletters, statements, advisories, and press releases including The Progress Report from CAP Action.
