Moving Hearts, Minds, and Policy

Lasting Change

We believe that opportunity should be full and equal and that greater opportunity benefits everyone. Every day, social justice leaders work to expand opportunity by advancing policies and a culture that support the rights and voices of all people.

Yet, too often the social justice community must counter well-financed communication efforts that support inequitable and unjust policies. To successfully opposeĀ these efforts, social justice leaders need support to tell compelling and evocative stories that drive policy and culture change. The Opportunity Agenda exists to provide that support.

The Opportunity Agenda is a social justice communication lab. We collaborate with leaders to move hearts and minds, driving lasting policy and culture change. We bring the inspirational voices of opportunity and possibility to social justice issues through communication expertise, and creative engagement.

To advance the impact of the social justice community, we shape compelling narratives and messages; build the communication capacity of leaders through training and resources; and engage with artists, creatives, and culture makers as powerful storytellers to shift the public discourse.

We believe in the power of communication and collaboration to drive lasting change. Let's work together to move hearts and minds to drive lasting policy and culture change, and to expand opportunity for all.
