During a period of ongoing disruption in government, with unclear destinations ahead, having solid dependable fact based analysis, that overcomes extreme partisan blinders, is extremely valuable.
One such source is an influential non-partisan research and policy generating non- profit called New America, which rotates leadership yearly between Repub and Dems, and has funding in large amounts across the spectrum of interests in the US.
They have a broad focus and footprint. which includes Education, Digital policy questions, and a lot more of the challenges that PSA hopes to see move ahead now and years to come. In some ways New America models what PSA is, but of course on a dramatically larger scale. PSA also works to find and promote the best ideas to support use of all that innovative ideas can make possible during the communications revolution of our time.
New America is a think tank and civic enterprise committed to renewing American politics, prosperity, and purpose in the Digital Age. We generate big ideas, bridge the gap between technology and policy, and curate broad public conversation.
Structurally, we combine the best of a policy research institute, technology laboratory, public forum, media platform, and a venture capital fund for ideas. We are a distinctive community of thinkers, writers, researchers, technologists, and community activists who believe deeply in the possibility of American renewal.
