What we focus on
We work to advance systemic solutions to poverty and strengthening civic communities. We focus mainly on these five areas:
We explore the link between poverty and human rights, including finding approaches that can better protect economic and social rights.
Our work on housing includes shaping and sharing policy ideas, investing in innovative solutions, and supporting partners working to strengthen communities.
Our work on income security includes mapping current public policy systems and understanding where those systems are working well, where they are under pressure, and where we have gaps.
We explore economic and social inequities in the criminal justice system – specifically, the relationship between human rights, poverty, racism, and the criminal justice system.
We explore how cities can adopt human rights as core principles in decision-making and take a rights-based approach in the design of policy and program solutions so they can truly effect the systemic change that is now required.
