The Analyst Institute helps Democratic, progressive, civic engagement, and social justice organizations figure out what really works in their mobilization, electoral, issue-based, and advocacy campaigns by partnering on research that uses rigorous, scientific methods. A core part of our mission is to facilitate the sharing of evidence across those working in the progressive ecosystem: we work with labor unions, environmental groups, racial justice organizers, LGBTQIA rights advocates, candidates running for office, and many more. We believe that collaboration across organizations is needed to improve our tactics, methods, and techniques, and that for the progressive movement to be successful, we must continue to learn from one another and work together.
If you’re looking for a political or social justice career, consider the world of data and research. Analytics, modeling, statistics, confidence intervals, randomized controlled trials … it can sound confusing, but the goal is clear: help make high-level strategy decisions with the best evidence possible. It's an exciting and growing frontier in politics and organizing, and the Analyst Institute is at the leading edge.
