The Congressional Progressive Caucus is comprised of more than 100 members of Congress standing up for progressive ideals in Washington and throughout the country. Since 1991, the CPC has advocated for progressive policies that prioritize working Americans over corporate interests, fight economic and social inequality, and advance civil liberties. The CPC champions progressive policy solutions like comprehensive immigration reform, good-paying jobs, fair trade, universal health care, debt-free college, climate action, and a just foreign policy. The caucus, which consists of 100 House members and one Senator, has been the leading voice calling for bold and sweeping solutions to the urgent crises facing this nation, including ending America’s broken for-profit health care system, raising the minimum wage, eliminating political corruption, bolstering labor protections for working families, and taking swift action to stop the warming of our planet.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus believes in government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Our Progressive Promise is rooted in our core principles: (1) Advancing justice, dignity, and peace for all; (2) Tackling systems of oppression and dismantling structural racism and discrimination; (3) Taking on systems that privilege the wealthy and powerful to demand a government and economy that works for the people; and (4) A commitment to sweeping, transformative change.
The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) is made up of one hundred and one members. It is chaired by Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (WA-07), alongside CPC Deputy Chair, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (MN-05), and CPC Whip, Congressman Greg Casar (TX-35).
