WHAT WE DO
IPS is a progressive think tank dedicated to building a more equitable, ecologically sustainable, and peaceful society. In partnership with dynamic social movements, we turn transformative policy ideas into action.
HOW WE DO IT
Our team shifts media narratives, promotes game changing policy, builds capacity of social movements, and grows the next generation of activist-scholars.
