The Joseph Rainey Center for Public Policy is a post-partisan, 501(c)3 public policy research organization and incubator for diverse, non-traditional emerging policy leaders.
The Rainey Center engages in policy research, educates policymakers, engages in outreach and runs a fellowship program for emerging policy leaders.
We ask our scholars and fellows to embrace the ideal of human-centered policy as a guide. Aside from this, they are otherwise as diverse in ideology as they are in race, ethnicity, gender, and socioeconomic background. We believe the most credible, effective, enactable policies are ones made when everyone is at the table. We strive to model this in practice as an institution.
Like our namesake and inspiration, Joseph Rainey
, we don’t shy away from addressing difficulties in policy-making, challenging the status quo, or tackling controversial issues.
