Grants to this Grantee
for support of the Political Reform program  
New America’s Political Reform program aims to expand the public conversation about American democracy and introduce new ideas through research, convenings, new voices, and accessible analysis. The program’s approach is grounded in a recognition that political reforms are refracted through the realities of political culture, participation, and power. The program’s work is organized around three initiatives: structural reform (such as ranked choice voting and money in politics), civic engagement, and the politics of policy. Approaching reform as a complex system, the program is distinctively able to envision a path toward civic awakening in the next decade. (Strategy: Improving Campaigns and Elections)
for support of New America CA Economic Equity  
New America CA is a project of New America focused on issues of racial and economic equity. Its work illuminates structural and systemic barriers to equity, seeking to reform economic opportunity and reimagine capitalism such that financial resources — from work to income to the public safety net — meet the needs of residents in equitable ways. Based on the belief that successful narrative change shifts power through new portrayals of people, communities, and systems, New America CA produces written content and convenes public audiences so that authentic stories, ideas, needs, and perspectives can influence broader public will and social consciousness.
for bridging open education and equity in pre-K-12 learning and teaching  
New America is a nonpartisan think tank dedicated to renewing, reimagining, and realizing the promise of America in an era of rapid technological and social change. With this grant, New America’s Education Policy program will build on existing efforts to elevate the importance of equity and inclusion and the role of high-quality open educational resources and practices in ensuring academic excellence and well-being for all students. This will be accomplished through research and policy analysis, case making, community building, and the development of new resources and tools. (Substrategy: Sustainable Systems)
