Who We Are
Public Agenda is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that helps diverse leaders and citizens navigate divisive, complex issues and work together to find solutions.
Through nonpartisan research and public engagement, we provide the insights, tools and support people need to build common ground and arrive at solutions that work for them.
In doing so, we are proving that it is possible to make progress on critical issues regardless of our differences.
In all of our work, we seek to help build a democracy in which problem solving triumphs over gridlock and inertia, and where public policy reflects the thoughtful input and values of the nation's citizens.
We work to help leaders and citizens move toward solutions on a variety of issues. These include:
- K-12 education
- higher education
- energy issues and climate change
- health care
- the federal budget deficit and national debt
