IPS is a progressive think tank dedicated to building a more equitable, ecologically sustainable, and peaceful society. In partnership with dynamic social movements, we turn transformative policy ideas into action.
“I think this moment global pandemic is showing us very clearly that all human life is interrelated, which means that none of us is safe until all of us are safe.”
The fact that so many Americans are facing dire circumstances now is a direct result of the exploitation economy and we should take this opportunity to change it.

In the face of another global financial crisis, the coronavirus stimulus is an opportunity to finally reorient our economy to serve people over profits.
Help IPS turn progressive policy ideas into action.
Everyone has a right to thrive on a planet where all communities are equitable, democratic, peaceful, and sustainable. Together, we must speak truths to power and challenge the structures that keep us from realizing our full potential as human beings, members of society, and keepers of this planet.
