Center for American Progress: Faith and Progressive Policy Initiative

The Center for American Progress (CAP) is an independent nonpartisan policy institute that is dedicated to improving the lives of all Americans, through bold, progressive ideas, as well as strong leadership and concerted action. Within the Center for American Progress, the Faith and Progressive Policy Initiative works to promote a more just, merciful nation and world—and to build support for the policies that will help bring this vision into reality.

Why We Invested

The Center for American Progress’ Faith and Progressive Policy Initiative works to strengthen interfaith relationships that will help communities facing threats and will advance positive norms at the national level.

A new project of the initiative, “Exploring the Wisdom Traditions Behind Progressive Faith Movements,” will explore the central philosophy of progressive faith movements in America. To do this, the project is convening faith leaders and movement builders in 2020 to develop shared language and a common vision on progressive faith leadership. Following the convening, they will make their findings publicly available.
