About the Joint Center

The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public policy organization that produces innovative, high-impact ideas, research, and policy solutions that have a positive impact on people and communities of color.  We do this by building and fueling a nonpartisan network of innovative elected and appointed officials of color and scholars for whom this goal is a priority.  The Joint Center uses policy roundtables, research reports, and targeted media to reach our key audiences of innovative officials of color and other thought leaders.
