1776 Unites: Scholars

The scholars gathered by 1776 Unites are experts on poverty, history, economic development, racial inequality, and a host of other issues critical to diagnosing the problems facing America today and offering real, actionable solutions. They hold views across the political spectrum but share a common concern for the health of our civic life and a focus on pragmatic, outcomes-based policies that transcend partisanship and groupthink. Their work can be read here at our website or purchased from our library, and we curate links to their writing elsewhere. Our movement helps bring these writers, journalists, and public intellectuals together with grassroots activists on the ground, so that each group’s work can inform and shape the other’s.
