The Institute for Policy Studies is the nation’s oldest multi-issue progressive think tank. Based in Washington, DC, but with links to activists and scholars across the nation and around the world, the Institute serves as a bridge between progressive forces in government and grass-roots activists, and between movements in the U.S. and those in the developing world. The Social Action and Leadership School for Activists (SALSA) teaches the basics of organizing, management, communications, and other movement-building skills to hundreds of activists each year. SALSA is: a skills training program that strengthens community activism and fosters engaged citizenship; a forum for discussion and development of progressive issues and agendas; a unique networking opportunity for social change activists.
