The New Policy Institute is a non-partisan think tank based in Washington D.C. Our mission is to imagine and build a 21st century America capable of meeting the challenges of our time.

We believe that to replicate our 20th century success in the 21st century, we will need to do three things:

  • Offer ideas that tackle the challenges of our time
  • Master the new media and technology that are changing the way people communicate with one another
  • Understand the changing demographics of our country and engage new Americans

The New Policy Institute conducts research and builds solutions that address all three of these areas. We work to provide insightful analysis and detailed strategies that will help America succeed in the 21st century.

The New Policy Institute is an affiliate of the advocacy organization NDN and a project of The Tides Center.
