Generation Progress is a national organization that works with and for young people to promote progressive solutions to key political and social challenges. Formerly known as Campus Progress, we are expanding our programs in activism, journalism, policy research and advocacy to engage all Millennials, not just those on college campuses. Generation Progress engages a diverse group of young people nationwide, inspires them to embrace progressive values, provides them with essential trainings, and helps them to make their voices heard—and to push policy outcomes in a strongly progressive direction.

Generation Progress’s work is based on the idea that young people don’t have to wait to change the world; they have the power right now to tip the balance on critical issues from economic opportunity to access to education to environmental sustainability to human rights and civic engagement. At the same time, we work to see that new generations of progressives are better trained, better informed, more inclusive, and more united than ever before – so our country will have leaders with the skills, experience, and vision to address the most important challenges of the future.

Youth Arm of the center for American Progress

The Center for American Progress is a nonpartisan research and educational institute dedicated to promoting a strong, just and free America that ensures opportunity for all. We believe Americans are bound together by a common commitment to these values and we aspire to ensure our national policies reflect these values. Our policy and communications efforts are organized around four major objectives:

  • Developing a long term vision of a progressive America,
  • Providing a forum to generate new progressive ideas and policy proposals,
  • Responding effectively and rapidly to conservative proposals and rhetoric with a thoughtful critique and clear alternatives, and
  • Communicating progressive messages to the American public.

We work to find progressive and pragmatic solutions to significant domestic and international problems and develop policy proposals that foster a government that is “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
