A few well-written words can convey a wealth of information, particularly when there is no lag time between when they are written and when they are read. The IPS blog gives you an opportunity to hear directly from IPS scholars and staff on ideas large and small and for us to hear back from you.

A Blog for the Rest of Us

May 7, 2010 ·

One of our goals here at the Institute is to link scholarship and social movements. Our staff members travel all around the United States and the world to connect with laborers, farmers, organizers, officials, and activists who speak up for change.  

The goal of this blog is to continue these linkages. You want to see a more peaceful, just, and sustainable world, and so do we.  

The IPS Blog will:

  • Highlight issues fellows, associate fellows, and allies are tackling
  • Give you firsthand accounts of major social-movement events, from the G20 demonstrations to Department of Labor meetings  to fact-finding missions in Colombia
  • Converse about problems, actions, and ideas you, as progressives, find important
  • Be your resource for news and commentary you don't see elsewhere

We encourage your feedback, questions, and suggestions. Email jen@ips-dc.org or leave your thoughts in the comments.
