The Narrative Research Lab furthers The Opportunity Agenda's mission of advancing and strengthening connections within the immigration space, acting as a repository for research that has shaped narrative in the movement. The Lab’s digital library (below) supports this goal by enabling partners to discover effective messaging more quickly and build on each other’s research more efficiently.
