While it’s early in the Trump administration, it’s clear that progressives will need to resist and respond aggressively every single day. It is in this spirit of resistance that progressives will be able to protect the gains we’ve made in the past eight years, and work toward further progressive change in the future.
Charting a path for progressives in 2017 and into the future is one of our highest priorities at the Center for American Progress. The Ideas Conference brings together national leaders of the progressive cause. This daylong conference will be our signature event of the year. We will host leading elected officials, thought leaders, movement leaders, and others to discuss their ideas to move the country forward and address the needs of all Americans, covering topics from economics to energy, national security to the rise of the Resist movement.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
