Demos is a dynamic think-and-do tank that powers the movement for a just, inclusive, multiracial democracy. Through cutting-edge policy research, inspiring litigation, and deep relationships with grassroots organizations, Demos champions solutions that will create a democracy and economy rooted in racial equity. A key barrier to economic reform is that the public discourse in the United States remains heavily influenced by neoliberalism, and the embeddedness of neoliberal thought, which took decades for its advocates to achieve. In an era of widening inequality, Demos is leading a long-term effort to build a new intellectual paradigm of political economy that cuts across different policy areas and the broader world of ideas, opening up a wider range of possibilities for a more equitable and inclusive economy.

A think tank for the progressive movement, Demos plays a unique role as the ideas engine driving the era-defining political reimagination that this moment offers. Since its founding in 2000, Demos has worked to fight the American system of racial capitalism and autocracy through an interdisciplinary approach that combines research, advocacy, multi-platform communications, legal expertise, and deep partnerships with grassroots organizations across the country. Through its work around economic democracy, democracy, and movement building, Demos champions solutions that will create a democracy and economy rooted in racial equity, and build power for Black and brown communities.
