The Foundation invests in the following social change strategies:
1) Strategic Analysis, Research and Policy Development - Objective research to inform and reinvigorate public debate and to identify public policies that create opportunity for low-income and other marginalized individuals and families while protecting and advancing civil rights; resource mapping and power analysis to identify opportunities for policy change and to forge strategic linkages between organizations and efforts working toward a common social justice agenda.
2) Community-based Organizing and Base Building - Base building and organizing strategies that engage and build power among disenfranchised and underserved individuals and communities to address the underlying causes of social, racial and economic injustices. The Foundation prioritizes community-based organizations and coalitions that incorporate civic education and voter engagement into their work, and that work to achieve state-level impact.
