Not familiar with our work?

A strategy center is an organization that helps people think and act pragmatically so they can realize their goals. That is NPI’s role within the progressive movement.

At our core, we’re a think tank generating and refining ideas that support progressive policy directions (like environmental protection or universal healthcare). But we’re also a media, advocacy, and outreach organization. because we know that good ideas can’t do much good if nobody knows about them. It’s this practical focus on making ideas happen that sets us apart from traditional think tanks.

Think of NPI as a Swiss Army knife for the progressive movement. A think tank with the soul of a tech startup. We’re a multifaceted organization that has been built out of limited resources to move quickly and effectively.

We maximize every dollar donated to us because we have to: we run on grassroots energy and small dollar donations.

We’re funded and supported by activists who want to invest in permanent infrastructure, not just win the next campaign. Our goal is to sustain and strengthen the progressive movement between elections using the latest technology.
