Many policy think tanks and advocacy organizations are formed to respond to a broad set of issues, and the Demos group is just such an organization. Based in New York, Demos was founded in 2000 and is dedicated to “a democracy that is robust and inclusive.” Getting down to specifics, visitors can look into their four primary issue areas, which include economic opportunity, public works, long-range challenges and their democracy program. Along with these specific sections, visitors should definitely look into their “Publications” area, which include their briefing paper series, and their commentary pieces which have recently appeared in a host of newspapers, such as the Boston Globe and The New Republic. One rather nice highlight is the area titled “Democracy Dispatches”, which track and analyze democracy issues across the United States such as redistricting, voting regulations, and campaign spending. For those visitors who are looking for specific materials, there is also a search feature on the homepage, and an option to sign up for their RSS feed.
