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.
IPS AND YOU
There are many ways to get involved in progressive social change.
No savings, investments or home equity. This economic dystopia looms for minority families, and so does a choice: Do we want America to be more like Brazil or Canada?
Instead of tax-rate cuts for these big corporations, the coming tax debate in Congress should focus on making wealthy individuals and big corporations pay their fair share.
The United States today is the only industrialized nation that doesn’t guarantee health care as a basic right to all its citizens. The Medicare For All Act could change that.
