The American Dream Movement

Progressives’ Fight for the Middle Class

12:00 - 1:30 PM EDT

The promise of the American Dream is that if you work hard and play by the rules you can make a good life for you and your family. But right now, most Americans only see the rich getting richer and the middle class getting crushed. Corporations are making record profits but not using that money to hire and not paying their fair share (if any) in taxes. The richest have seen their incomes quadruple while their tax rates have been sliced in half.

Can the American Dream—and with it the middle class—be saved?

Millions of Americans, along with several leading grassroots organizations, believe the answer is yes and have joined together under a common banner the American Dream Movement.

Join the Center for American Progress Action Fund and leaders of the American Dream Movement for a discussion about what it will take for progressives to renew the American Dream and guarantee that the promise of America is for all Americans.
