Center for American Progress
The Center for American Progress is a progressive think tank dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through ideas and action. We are creating a long-term progressive vision for America – a vision that policymakers, thought leaders, and activists can use to shape the national debate and pass and implement laws that make a difference. Our mission is to transform progressive ideas into policy through rapid response communications, legislative action, grassroots organizing and advocacy and partnerships with other progressive leaders through the country and the world. The Center for American Progress was founded by John D. Podesta, former chief of staff to President William J. Clinton. He is now Chair and Counselor of CAP. Neera Tanden is President of CAP.
