Fighting for a U.S. federal budget that prioritizes peace, economic security and shared prosperity
Who we are:
National Priorities Project at the Institute for Policy Studies is dedicated to working with movement partners and activists to ensure that our federal resources prioritize peace, shared prosperity, and economic security for all. NPP at IPS is the only federal budget research project dedicated to making the federal budget transparent and accessible to ordinary Americans. In 2014, the project was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for our work on military spending.
The Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) is a progressive think tank dedicated to building a more equitable, ecologically sustainable, and peaceful society. We believe progress occurs when people and movements come together to act on powerful ideas based on equity, peace, and the protection of our planet. Since 1963, we have been challenging corrupt power structures that undermine a true democracy. Today, we are uniting people and movements around real, transformational change through independent research, networking across issues, and visionary platforms.
The Institute for Policy Studies is strengthened by the diversity of our community and our differences in background, culture, experience, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, and much more. We strongly encourage applications from people of color, women, the LGBTQIA community, and other groups that have historically been subject to discrimination.
