During the Communications Institute we worked with the Fellows on framing the criminal justice and immigration discourse in a way that tells a larger story, while allowing them to speak specifically to their own issues, such as racial profiling, human rights abuses along the US-Mexico border, the criminalization of young people in schools, immigrant detention, and gender and sexuality concerns. Past Institutes have focused on immigration; home opportunity; and race, gender, and economic opportunity.

The 2016 Communications Institute was made possible, in part, by the generous contributions of Atlantic Philanthropies, the Ford Foundation, the Open Society Foundations, the Libra Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, The JPB Foundation, and individual donors.
