For Support Of The Political Reform Program
Type of SupportGeneral Support/Program
New America has long diagnosed fundamental failings in the American political process — originally the absence of ideas that don’t fit established partisan agendas, and later the political system’s failure to engage with long-term priorities. In 2014, the foundation launched a new program on political reform, directed by Mark Schmitt. This work has evolved to include work on campaign finance and electoral reform; congressional capacity; race, identity, and political realignment; civic engagement; and more. This grant will support the ongoing work of the Political Reform program, including continued research, journalism, convenings, and fellowships at New America.

Grants to this Grantee
In 2020, #ShareTheMicInCyber was launched as a volunteer movement aiming to build a more diverse and effective cybersecurity field. The volunteer #ShareTheMicInCyber movement became widely popular. This grant supports the formalization of #ShareTheMicInCyber as a program under New America. This will enable #ShareTheMicInCyber to establish a strategic approach and structure to this work, as well as to launch a new fellowship program offering training, certifications, and research support to a diverse group of fellows.

for Replacing Neoliberalism - Imagining New Futures and the Strategies to Create Them
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.
