A more progressive economy is one that works for all. Every American who works hard for a better future for their family and for themselves should be able to achieve prosperity and a good life. These principles help to guide the fight for an economy that works for everyone, not just for the wealthiest Americans.
Central to a more progressive American economy are the principles of the rights of workers. Working in the United States should include the entrenched rights to organize, collectively bargain, and build a stronger and more robust workforce that helps to protect the hardest working Americans, and ensure that an individual is paid a fair wage for fair work.
America is a nation of immigrants. And we believe that diversity built through immigration has helped to create the diverse, beautiful, and strong country we live in today. Our immigration system is long overdue for comprehensive reform to reflect the realities of the 21st century. Congressional Progressive Caucus Center seeks to educate progressives on and off the Hill about the progressive values and potential policies regarding CIR.
Women's rights are critical to securing women's financial autonomy, economic prosperity, and career and education opportunities. Women still, on average, earn less than their male counterparts, experience workplace discrimination, face barriers to accessing healthcare, and are still subject to inequality in key aspects of their daily lives.
The CPCC conducts education and provides resources to advance women's rights. Together with key partners in Congress and around the country, we work toward ensuring that all individuals are treated equally, regardless of their gender. Congressional Progressive Caucus Center seeks to educate individuals both on and off the Hill regarding the continued inequities between different genders and how to envision a better and more equitable future through progressive principles and policies.
FOREIGN POLICY & NATIONAL SECURITY
Foreign policy, national security, and human rights were one of the founding policy areas of Progressive Congress and continue to be one of our most important issues.
Congressional Progressive Caucus Center seeks to educate Congress and the wider United States about a more progressive and enlightened foreign policy. One that focuses on securing our national and working for a more peaceful global community through diplomacy. The security state and principles of peace-through-force are antithetical to progressive principles and issues. Congressional Progressive Caucus Center works to secure a brighter, more peaceful future for Americans and the global community.
