Demand Progress Education Fund: Legislative Capacity Project

Demand Progress is a fiscally-sponsored project of Sixteen Thirty Fund, a 501(c)4 social welfare organization. Demand Progress and their more than two million members seek to protect the democratic character of the internet — and wield it to make government accountable and to contest concentrated corporate power.

Why We Invested

Demand Progress Education Fund helps members of Congress, their staff, and the public understand specific challenges facing congressional legislative and oversight capacity and possibilities for reform. Their deep knowledge of the internal workings of congressional offices and rules governing the institution allow the organization to highlight avenues for important improvement.
