Current Work

 

The Opportunity Agenda is a social justice communication lab. We collaborate with social justice leaders to move hearts and minds, driving lasting policy and culture change. We amplify the inspirational voices of opportunity through communication expertise, creative engagement and research. Equity for all is the cornerstone of all our work.

  1. We shape compelling narratives and messages and build the communication capacity of social justice leaders through training and resources.
  2. We engage with artists, creatives, and culture makers as powerful storytellers to shift the public discourse.
  3. We conduct research and use it to craft compelling narratives and effective messages.

Our current work is organized around three main initiatives:

Criminal Justice
An overview of public opinion and discourse on criminal justice issues
 
Immigrants and Opportunity 
Developing common themes for immigration messaging
 
Economic Opportunity
Access to homeownership under fair and sustainable terms
                 From Poverty to Opportunity
                
Media and public opinion on poverty in America

We host two annual gatherings for emerging social justice leaders: 

An annual event that brings together diverse social justice leaders for intensive communications skill-building and support
 
Creative Change
Retreats and convenings work at the intersection of arts and social justice
