ADVISORY: How We Move Forward: CAP Announces Slate of Virtual Events for August 17–20

Washington, D.C. — Since 2003, the Center for American Progress has been at the forefront of progressive policy—and today is no different. The country needs big ideas and inclusive policies to guide our next steps, from combating health and climate crises to ensuring every American has equal and equitable access to the promise of our nation. To bring about this future—our future—we must tackle our challenges with strength and knowledge, striving for policies that positively change the conversation and our nation for everyone.

From August 17 to 20, American Progress will convene four virtual events centered around the question of how we move forward: from health care, to education, to the economy, and our democracy, to making 2021 the start of a better way forward. Each event will take place at 1:00 p.m. EDT and will stream live.

This event advisory is subject to change and will be updated with new content. Visit “How We Move Forward” for the most up-to-date information.

For all four events, questions may be submitted on Twitter using the hashtag #MoveForward. Questions may also be submitted for Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday’s events via email to ‮g​r​o​.​s​s​e​r​g​o​r​p​n​a​c​i​r​e​m​a​@​s​n​o​i​t​s​e​u​q​t​n​e​v​e​P​A​C‭; for the event on Wednesday, questions may be submitted via email to ‮g​r​o​.​n​o​i​t​c​a​s​s​e​r​g​o​r​p​n​a​c​i​r​e​m​a​@​s​n​o​i​t​s​e​u​q​t​n​e​v​e​F​A​P​A​C‭.

Making 2021 the Start of a Better Way Forward
