Institute for Social Policy and Understanding: Collaboration between ISPU and the Pulitzer Center

Founded in 2002, Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that builds understanding and strengthens communities by laying a foundation of facts. They are the go-to source for anyone seeking information about Muslims in America and issues that impact them.

Why We Invested

Through our Public Square program and Just and Inclusive Society Project, Democracy Fund is working to protect communities facing threats through interventions in journalism and legal services. The Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU)‘s collaboration with the Pulitzer Center on training journalists will strengthen accurate coverage of Muslim communities in the United States, and will lead to more representative, inclusive, and engaged reporting on American Muslims.
