The Center for Research and Policy in the Public Interest (CR2PI) works at the intersections of race, gender, class and other markers of difference on a range of social issues and problems. We conduct ground breaking original research and policy analysis focused on women of color, their families and communities. Research generated at CR2PI is used to build knowledge, influence the public debate, and create informed public policies at the local, state, and national levels. The ultimate goal of our research and policy analysis is to increase access and relieve disparities for economically vulnerable families, and to help build more connected communities throughout the United States
As a part of the Collaborative, CR2PI will continue to produce and disseminate timely reports and policy briefs focused on the economic security and well-being of young girls and women of color, their families and communities using an intersectional approach and analysis. The reports will be widely available and used to help inform the work of community-based organizations, philanthropic institutions, and colleges and universities across the country.
“We are proud to work with this coalition to generate more knowledge and research about girls and women of color. The more we know, the more we can begin to generate policy solutions and create programs that are connected to their lives and experiences.”
Dr. C. Nicole Mason, Executive Director
