About Demos

About Demos. Founded in 2000 and headquartered in New York City with offices in Washington, DC and Boston, Demos is a public policy organization working for an America where all have an equal say in our democracy and an equal chance in our economy. We move ideas powerful enough to improve the lives of everyday Americans through the full cycle of change. We champion over-the-horizon policy solutions, shift the narrative to clear the way for their acceptance, and advocate until they take effect. We use the right strategy for the right moment, whether it’s research or communications, supporting organizers or litigating. This commitment to the full cycle of change has resulted in real victories, such as landmark credit card reforms and nearly 2 million new voter registration applications from low-income citizens. Throughout all of our work, Demos is advocating not just for people, but for the very idea of the people—of one nation, united by a shared fate.

“Demos' mission is a powerful one, and if you are interested in public policy and racial equity I cannot recommend interning here enough. The staff were incredibly supportive of my growth, and offered me opportunities to step into leadership. I was ultimately hired there and worked at Demos for almost 5 years. This is an organization that strives to live its values, and you can feel it at work. ”
