What They Do
As a civic enterprise, they are committed to the solution of public problems. Solutions at scale are likely to require the combined efforts of the public, private, and civic sectors as well as a blend of technology, policy, and politics. New America provides a platform that enables individuals and groups working on these solutions to drive different stages of change, from inspiration to implementation. Their work concentrates in the following categories:
Identifying and nurturing new and diverse thinkers, researchers and writers and helping them join the public conversation.
Developing and implementing ideas and policies to address public problems at the local, state, federal, and international level.
Bridging the worlds of technology, policy, politics, and academia, both by creating, testing, and piloting new technologies and integrating existing technologies into policy solutions.
Using media and live events to share ideas and engage audiences in the nation’s capital and across the country around shared challenges.
