The Congressional Progressive Caucus is comprised of nearly 100 progressive members of the U.S. House of Representatives and one U.S. Senator 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 96 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 Co-Chairs of the CPC -- U.S. Representatives Mark Pocan (WI-02) and Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) welcome your interest in the caucus.
Our Caucus members promote a strong, progressive agenda, what we call “The Progressive Promise--Fairness for All”. The Progressive Promise is rooted in four core principles that embody national priorities and are consistent with the values, needs and aspirations of all the American people, not just the powerful and the privileged. They reflect a fundamental belief in government of the people, by the people, and for the people.
The four, core principles of the Progressive Promise:
1. Fighting for economic justice and security for all;
2. Protecting and preserving our civil rights and civil liberties;
3. Promoting global peace and security; and
4. Advancing environmental protection and energy independence
The CPC is committed to helping progressives, both inside and outside of Congress, to work together more effectively, in order to make good on The Progressive Promise.
Again, we appreciate your interest in the CPC and we look forward to working together to build a strong progressive movement throughout America and beyond.
