The Labor & Worklife Program (LWP) is Harvard Law School’s center for research, teaching, and creative problem solving related to work and its implications for society. LWP has launched the Clean Slate Project to build and implement policy recommendations to reconstruct labor law in order to rebalance our economy and politics. The recommendations will be released to the public generally for educational and informational purposes. The Clean Slate Project starts from problems of economic and political inequality that we need to solve. The Project will (a) identify legal mechanisms that can address those problems; (b) create fellowships to support innovative organizing campaigns and feed learnings from the grassroots into our policy recommendations; (c) build a campaign to support change at the federal level in the long term; and (d) support grants to catalyze adoption of innovative policies at the state and local level in the near term.

Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Shorenstein Center’s Technology and Social Change research
The Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School is dedicated to exploring the intersection of press, politics, and public policy. Given the rise of misinformation, the center has created the Technology and Social Change research project to rapidly build the field of critical internet studies across academia, working with policymakers, industry, and newsrooms. This grant will in part support the expansion of a shared digital research infrastructure.

Harvard University will use this grant to create a new center that will foster research and curriculum development, as well as work with other university centers being established to cultivate a network that will develop new thinking around political economy, economy, and society.
