Our mission

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

Our values

As progressives, we believe America should be a land of boundless opportunity, where people can climb the ladder of economic mobility. We believe we owe it to future generations to protect the planet and promote peace and shared global prosperity. And we believe an effective government can earn the trust of the American people, champion the common good over narrow self-interest, and harness the strength of our diversity.

Our approach

We work alongside progressive strategists across the space to support vital new policies, challenge the media to cover the issues that truly matter, and shape the national debate. With policy teams in major issue areas, as well as in-house digital, communications, and research experts, the Center for American Progress Action Fund is able to drive the conversation and hold leaders accountable to progressive values.
