“It’s bet­ter to light a can­dle than to curse the darkness.”

 

The ADA Edu­ca­tion Fund is an inde­pen­dent, char­i­ta­ble entity that focuses on increas­ing pub­lic aware­ness through edu­ca­tion and com­mu­nity orga­niz­ing that builds capac­ity for change. The Ed Fund pro­duces peri­odic pol­icy briefs, hosts pro­gres­sive speak­ers on a range of issues, spon­sors advo­cacy and research fel­low­ships, and works to expand civic par­tic­i­pa­tion through com­mu­nity orga­niz­ing around eco­nomic and social jus­tice issues.

ADA Edu­ca­tion Fund also author orig­i­nal research on pro­gres­sive solu­tions to today’s press­ing issues. Whether it is prepar­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of pol­i­cy­mak­ers to face cru­cial chal­lenges or hon­or­ing our his­tory and the strug­gles of ear­lier gen­er­a­tions, we tire­lessly work to improve the lives of aver­age Americans.

In the words of one of our founders, Eleanor Roo­sevelt, “It’s bet­ter to light a can­dle than to curse the dark­ness.” We are one such candle.

Join in and help spread the word!
