CAMP LEADERSHIP SUMMIT Follow Up - Introduction to CAP
Wajahat Ali the moderator of the “Being Muslim in America” session at the CAMP Leadership Summit - will host a follow up session with Sally Steenland of CAP (Center for American Progress).
The Center for American Progress is dedicated to improving the lives of Americans through progressive ideas and action. Building on the achievements of progressive pioneers such as Teddy Roosevelt and Martin Luther King, CAP's work addresses 21st-century challenges such as energy, national security, economic growth and opportunity, immigration, education, and health care.
CAP develops new policy ideas, critiques the policy that stems from conservative values, and challenges the media to cover the issues that truly matter and shape the national debate.
Founded in 2003 to provide long-term leadership and support to the progressive movement, CAP is headed by John D. Podesta and based in Washington, D.C. CAP opened a Los Angeles office in 2007.
