Since 1999, New America has nurtured a new generation of policy experts and public intellectuals. Today we are a community of innovative problem-solvers, combining our core expertise in researching, reporting and analysis with new areas of coding, data science, and human-centered design to experiment and innovate nationally and globally. We prize our intellectual and ideological independence and our diversity, seeking to do our best work and to reflect the America we are becoming.
New America is pioneering a new kind of think and action tank: a civic platform that connects a research institute, technology lab, solutions network, media hub and public forum.
We generate big, bold ideas as templates for change.
We design and advance evidence-based public policies.
We surface, share, and scale locally generated and tested solutions to public problems through a national and global network of public, private, and civic partners.
We develop legal, political and technological tools to build democratic capacity and enable solutions to grow and spread.
We tell stories about what is happening and what is possible, to give Americans a window into what we are capable of achieving together and a vision of what a renewed America could and should be.
