New America Foundation: New Models of Policy Change Project in the Political Reform Program

New America is a think tank dedicated to renewing America by continuing the quest to realize our nation's highest ideals, honestly confronting the challenges caused by rapid technological and social change, and seizing the opportunities those changes create.

Why We Invested

​Democracy Fund’s Just and Inclusive Society project believes that with diverse organizations and communities working together for a common good, we create safe and secure communities, decrease polarization, develop a sense of shared national identity, and make space to defend constitutional norms under attack. With increasing polarization and political violence targeting at-risk communities, this grant will support the Political Reform Program, through the New Models for Policy Change project, at New America to strengthen work on building resilience to political violence.
