Our agenda is ambitious, aspirational, and actionable. It is built on the bedrock belief that for political movements to succeed in our political system, they must relentlessly re-imagine their policies, strategies, and coalitions.

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 21st century global threats.

We are looking for creative policy junkies to help us tackle these tough economic challenges. These issues, and numerous others, will be critical to explore as Third Way addresses the economic recovery and other challenges and...
