    Sign up now and we’ll send you the event details closer to the event date.

    You can inform and mobilize members around the world to make progress and win in the midterms. The Fight for (at least) $15. Meaningful Medicare expansion. Student debt relief. Reparative justice. Climate change action. Voting rights. And more. Will you help America build back better and get out the vote for progress?  Please donate here.  Donate $1 (number of Congressional Progressive Caucus Senators) to $100 (number of CPC Representatives), perhaps an amount equal to the number of new members you want to join the CPC in November.  Thank you!
