Third Way

Third Way is a national think tank that champions modern center-left ideas. We are fighting for opportunity, so everyone has the chance to earn a good life; progress on social issues, so all have the freedom to live the lives they choose; and security, so we are protected from the global threats of the 21st century.

We believe smart policymaking can help solve this existential threat while creating opportunities for workers and communities across America.
