Our Story

We are dedicated to realizing the promise of America in an era of rapid technological and social change.

At New America, our research and policy recommendations focus on five key thematic areas: education from birth to workforce; family economic security and wellbeing; people- and planet-centered global politics; political reform and civic engagement; and technology and democracy.

In each area of our work, we put equity at the center; elevate stories of people closest to the public problems we seek to solve; invest in the next generation of leaders; and intentionally engage with local perspectives.

Taken together, these efforts advance toward our vision of a more equitable America that lives up to its values.
