2018 Ideas Conference



For the past 15 years, the Center for American Progress has served as a creative engine for introducing bold solutions that advance progressive values on nearly every possible front. In the past year alone, we have defended the Affordable Care Act; outlined policies to create workplaces that support women and families; discussed the impact of race across a wide range of issue areas; and helped drive opposition to President Donald Trump’s tax plan.

At CAP, we believe that ideas are the heart of all progressive change, but we also know that ideas aren’t enough. It takes grassroots advocacy and real leadership supporting those ideas to create true progressive change.

As we celebrate our 15th year of big ideas, CAP is bringing together elected officials, policy experts, cultural influencers, and grassroots activists at the 2018 CAP Ideas Conference, where we will explore and unveil new ideas that can make America a place for every single one of us to thrive.

  1. If they had an electoral college in the Hunger Games, poor Katniss wouldn't have needed to light herself on fire and whatnot. I guess Pocahontas was in the back of the theater rooting for the Capitol.

  2. Pocahontas needs to study constitution. But then, she wouldn't complain about Electoral College if Hillary had won.

  3. Thank you for having Bernie Sanders at this conference! We are all for him to be our next President.

  4. What about countering the tyranny of the majority? How can you ever do that in a representative republic without the electoral college? Does not majority rule (pure democracy) always lead to the dictatorship of the mob if not an eventual dictator? PS Senator… last time I checked we are not a pure democracy we are a representative republic!!!!!!!!!!!!
