Who We Are:

Demos is a non-partisan public policy research and advocacy organization founded in 2000. Headquartered in New York City, Demos works with advocates and policymakers around the country in pursuit of four overarching goals:

to rebuild pathways to the middle class for all Americans;
to reduce the role of wealth and corporate power in politics and policy;
to develop a new, reformed economic model for capitalism that promotes the common good and;
to reduce racial and class inequities in power, representation, and participation.

The American Prospect is a leading DC based magazine that provides insightful and timely policy analysis on the political issues affecting our nation. The Prospect was founded in 1990 by Paul Starr, Robert Reich and Robert Kuttner, who felt that there was not a progressive publication focused on economic issues that was as interested in policy as it was politics. Since then The Prospect's coverage has expanded to address broader issues of social justice—immigration, gay rights, women's rights.

Our ten year history of collaboration, shared values and complementary strengths allows both organizations to increase our reach and impact toward the shared goal of bringing about progressive change.

Savory Thymes convenes artists, grassroots organizations and activists in order to cross pollinate ideas, build relationships and alliances, and provide a space to galvanize support for a wide variety of social and environmental initiatives. Established in 2005 by Alison Ghiorse, Savory Thymes supports and educates the public about local and sustainable systems within the context of grassroots movements and the arts, through events that celebrate the beauty, the tastes, and the textures of the Earth.
