California Community Partnerships

The Haas Institute partners with community-based organizations to ensure that members of marginalized communities have the resources, tools, and power to be meaningfully involved in transforming the structures that shape community opportunity and belonging.

We develop rigorous community-engaged research, trainings, and communications tools that are integrated with our partners' grassroots organizing and leadership development strategies. This produces analysis, policy, and strategies shaped by the direct experience and vision of affected community members, and the insights of scientific and technical research. We choose partnerships based on shared values and goals, and the potentially transformative nature of the partnership's impact. 

We currently have four major projects. Click on the links below to learn about them:
