Grants to this Grantee
for the Women’s Health and Rights Program  
This grant will continue work to protect and advance reproductive health and rights through research and policy ideas that establish a framework for public debate. The program integrates disciplines such as economics, health care, and gender, and reaches a broad audience of advocates, policymakers, and the public through earned media, rapid response, editorial board outreach, op-ed placements, and broadcast media.
for climate and energy story bank  
The Center for American Progress (CAP) seeks to protect and improve the lives of Americans most affected by the impacts of climate change. To that end, CAP will build a multi-issue story bank to collect, vet, and amplify the personal stories of individuals who put a face on the detrimental effects of dismantling health-based regulations and funding for environmental safeguards.
for support of the "States of Change: Demographics and Democracy" project  
The Center for American Progress' States of Change project documents and analyzes the challenges to democracy posed by the rapid demographic evolution of the United States from the 1970s to 2060, including the extent to which different demographic groups may be overrepresented and underrepresented in the political process. Center for American Progress has produced the most detailed available data on past and future demographic changes, including projections of the race/ethnic, age, and generational composition of every state to 2060, which has not been done for 20 years. This has allowed the project to promote a wide-ranging discussion of America's demographic future and what it portends for the nation's political parties and for public policy.
