Progress 2050, a project of the Center for American Prog-ress, seeks to lead, broaden, and strengthen the progressivemovement by working toward a more inclusive progressiveagenda—one that truly reflects our nation’s rich ethnic andracial diversity. By 2050 there will be no ethnic majority inour nation and to ensure that the unprecedented growth of communities of color also yields future prosperity, we work to close racial disparities across the board with innovativepolicies that work for all.PolicyLink is a national research and action institute advancing economicand social equity by Lifting Up What Works.®Founded in 1999, PolicyLink connects the work of people on the ground tothe creation of sustainable communities of opportunity that allow every-one to participate and prosper. Such communities o
er access to quality jobs, a
ordable housing, good schools, transportation, and the beneﬁts of healthy food and physicalactivity. Guided by the belief that those closestto the nation’s challenges are central to ﬁnding solutions, PolicyLink relieson the wisdom, voice, and experience of local residents and organiza-tions. Lifting Up What Works is our way of focusing attention on howpeople are working successfully to use local, state, and federal policy tocreate conditions that beneﬁt everyone, especially people in low-incomecommunities and communities of color. We share our ﬁndings andanalysis through our publications, website and online tools, convenings,national summits, and in brieﬁngs with national and local policymakers.Our work is grounded in the conviction that equity—just, fair, and greeninclusion—mustdrive all policy decisions.
