The Insight Center sparks research and ideation, amplifies hidden voices and truths, and seeds the field with visionary leaders and changemakers.
Our current work targets the four primary drivers of economic exclusion and racial inequity: intergenerational wealth transfer; the changing nature of work; harmful narratives; and inequities in the criminal justice system, namely mass incarceration and fines and fees that disproportionately affect communities of color.
We address these issues at the root level through innovative, multidimensional initiatives and partnerships that leverage our core capacities in research, ideation, narrative change, and leadership to foster systemic, transformational change.
We work across the nation. We are headquartered in Oakland, California, our lab for progressive policy innovation and thought leadership.
