How we challenge the systems of oppression

Every day, social justice leaders work to expand opportunity by advancing policies and a culture that support the rights and voices of all people. Yet, too often the social justice community must counter well-financed communication efforts that support inequitable and unjust policies.

We believe in the power of communication and collaboration to drive lasting change. We partner with leaders to move hearts and minds, and to drive lasting policy and culture change by lifting up the inspirational voices of opportunity and possibility.

We Can Thrive Together

Ending poverty is within our reach. In partnership with Amplifier, we designed a discussion guide including original art for activists, cultural strategists, teachers, and youth across the country to start a conversation about what Economic Justice looks like and how to achieve it.

Messaging & Reports

Explore our communications and research resources designed to strengthen your work and make an impact on the issues that matter most to you.

Culture is a powerful force for moving hearts, minds and policies, and we see cultural strategies as the secret to unlocking culture’s social change power.

Cultural Strategies

By convening, connecting and supporting artists, media makers and advocates, we are amplifying the impact of cultural strategies, raising the profile of leading practitioners of these strategies, and showing movement leaders why creativity must be a part of their toolkit.

Training & Workshops

One of the greatest strengths of the social justice movement is that we respect each others’ perspectives and value the continued process of learning from our peers. Too often, though, we communicate in silos, failing to convey a shared narrative that can move hearts and minds, and drive lasting policy and culture change. The Opportunity Agenda helps bridge that gap through intensive, interactive communications trainings that include skill and capacity-building workshops, panels, and webinars that have reached thousands of leading advocates and activists.

Our Community
our priorities

economic justice

Economic Justice requires advocating for systems that provide everyone the opportunity for a dignified, productive, safe, and creative life—a life in which they can prosper for themselves, and for their loved ones.

our priorities


Immigrants are critical to the vibrancy of American life. We push back against harmful immigration narratives to tell a values-based story that reflects the richness of immigrant communities across the nation. Our diversity has always been our strength.

our priorities

beyond democracy

Our government should be by the people, for the people. Everyone should have a say in the decisions that affect their lives, and this requires an open and inclusive democracy.

Kerry Washington turned to The Opportunity Agenda to help develop materials that could be used to discuss the difficult issues raised in both the play and the Netflix television event, American Son.
