We provide the support Conservatives need
It’s not easy for those who come to Washington with the intent of standing on principle and putting America first.
From day one, establishment politicians teach members of Congress that if they play ball, they will be showered with special interest donations, receive plum committee assignments, and attract adoration from the media.
They also learn that if they fight for conservative principles they’ll be denied the resources and access needed to be effective. This is how the D.C. Swamp operates.
This is why former South Carolina Senator Jim DeMint launched CPI in 2017. He saw the need for a group that would support conservatives in Washington, connect them with one another, and give them access to the very best facilities and advice–so they don’t get pulled into the D.C. Swamp by either party.
Now, with a team of bold conservative leaders that includes former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, CPI is delivering on this mission every day.
From our headquarters just a half mile from the U.S. Capitol, CPI trains, equips, and convenes the movement’s best and most courageous leaders. While today’s Washington is designed to defeat conservatives, CPI is designed to build them up.
What We Do
CPI is a support organization for the conservative movement. We vet and recommend conservative staffers for congressional offices and conservative groups, and we train these staffers to be effective. At our headquarters, we bring together freedom fighters from the House, Senate, and conservative organizations for regular strategy sessions. We provide convenient, high-tech broadcast studios and meeting spaces to members and allies. And we form and lead coalitions and help to launch new conservative organizations.
CPI’s strategic location and our responsive, servant philosophy make us unique.
When conservatives are attacked or targeted for cancellation, they come to CPI’s Conservative Partnership Center at 300 Independence Ave. for the support and resources they need to keep fighting for conservative principles in Washington and across the nation.
Each year, CPI hosts a Conservative Members Conference for congressmen. Attendees leave better equipped to thwart the left’s agenda and advance conservative initiatives on the Hill.
We regularly convene members of the Senate Steering Committee, the House Freedom Caucus, Congressional Chiefs of Staff, and Congressional Legislative Directors to sharpen both messaging and strategy.
CPI also leads consensus-building projects, bringing groups together in a way that actually moves the needle on tough issues. CPI is helping conservatives work together to fight back against Big Tech censorship, in partnership with Media Research Center and others.
And through our partnership with the Election Integrity Network, we’re getting key players across the country together to restore the election integrity safeguards that the left is trying to tear down.
CPI also helps new conservative groups to get off the ground. In the past two years, we’ve provided the administrative, staffing, and legal support needed to launch almost a dozen groups–including America First Legal, Center for Renewing America, American Cornerstone Institute, American Accountability Foundation, American Moment, and Personnel Policy Operations.
These groups are already winning important battles against the left, not just here in Washington–but in courtrooms, school rooms, and board rooms across America. With every new CPI partner and every group we help launch, CPI is expanding a new culture of conservatives who fight smarter and fight together.
The CPI team brings decades of strategic communications experience to the fight. We’ve gone to battle against the leftist media and the Washington establishment. We know what it takes to break through, and we are equipping conservative communicators with the messaging and support they need to be effective.
CPI Studios, our state-of-the-art media center, is home to numerous podcasts and TV shows, and is visited regularly by members of Congress and allied groups. In less time than it takes to eat lunch, members can conduct media and TV interviews from our studios and still make it back to the U.S. Capitol for an important vote.
CPI is also creating cancel-proof communicators through our “Revere Project.” These days it takes more than a fast horse to get the message out. It takes expert knowledge of digital marketing, social media, communications, speechwriting, and video editing. That is what the Revere Project teaches.
Training & Staffing
Winning on the Hill doesn’t happen by accident. Conservative members need like-minded staffers who are dedicated to the cause and know how to get things done. CPI identifies, interviews, and recommends proven conservatives on the Hill and in organizations throughout Washington. To date, we’ve pitched hundreds of top-notch candidates for positions in key House and Senate offices. We keep our eyes on influential committees and conservative offices that will require fresh staffing needs.
CPI also provides regular training seminars on House and Senate procedure, floor strategy, communications, policy, speechwriting, and other skills conservatives need. These seminars are taught by CPI President Ed Corrigan, CPI Senior Director of Policy Rachel Bovard, and other key experts and Capitol Hill veterans.
Whether you are a conservative member of Congress, a staffer serving in a conservative office, or an activist working with a conservative policy organization, Washington does not reward you for being a patriot. Principled fighters are isolated, ostracized, and made to feel completely alone—but not at CPI.
Our Conservative Partnership Center provides a home base and a networking hub for conservatives. We help conservatives to build the relationships and support necessary to thrive in an environment that too often strips them of their resolve. Nearly every day of the week, you’ll find our facilities filled with conservatives connecting with one another, recharging, and getting back out to win. From our “First Fridays” gatherings for young staffers to our regular working groups, there’s always a chance to forge new strategic relationships here at CPI.
