The Economic Mobility Project partners with organizations and donors who share our commitment to nonpartisan research on the state of opportunity in America.
The Principals Group includes individuals who represent think tanks from across the political spectrum, and the Advisory Board comprises nationally recognized economists, social scientists, and policy experts from across the country who contribute a broad and diverse base of knowledge and experience.
In addition, the project works with funding partners on specific research and analysis projects.
