The American Prospect is a quarterly print and digital political magazine based in Washington, D.C. Our website, Prospect.org, produces daily commentary on events of the day along with a steady stream of public policy analysis. We’re liberal and progressive but we also hold the left accountable when necessary. When the Prospect was founded in 1990, conservatism was ascendant and income inequality had begun to balloon. There wasn’t then a progressive publication focused on economic issues that was as interested in policy as it was politics. So we filled that void. Since then, we’ve expanded our coverage to address broader issues of social justice—immigration, gay rights, women’s rights as well as education and the environment.

Catalist has been a leader in civic data and data science innovation.

We are committed to using technology and the talents of our diverse team to nurture a vibrant, growing, progressive community. 

People living in our nation’s capital pay full federal taxes, fight and die in wars, and serve on juries, yet are still denied voting representation in the U.S Congress. DC Vote envisions a fairer America where residents of the nation’s capital are equal citizens. Where Washingtonians gain the freedom to control our own budget, pass our own laws without Congressional interference and have the right to representation in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate equal to each of the 50 states. This will be permanently guaranteed for everyone in the District only when DC is granted Statehood.
