About Us

New America NYC brings together big ideas and lively conversation in the unique setting of New York City. It works to curate, connect, catalyze, and communicate the new America that is emerging beyond the Beltway to connect government to ideas, ideas to action, and citizens to government.

Three New America programs are based at New America NYC: our U.S.-Iran Initiative, directed by Suzanne DiMaggio, works to shape conversations around the Iranian nuclear negotiations; Resilient Communities helps communities address large-scale systemic challenges, anticipate risks, and prepare for change; and Profits and Purpose aims to examine and enhance how we harness private resources for public purpose.
