“It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.”
ADA Education Fund actively foster understanding and awareness on the issues of public policy that challenge our nation’s history of economic and social justice. We also author original research on progressive solutions to these questions. Whether it is preparing the next generation of policymakers to face crucial challenges or honoring our history and the struggles of previous generations, we tirelessly work to improve the lives of average Americans.
We ensure the important issues of economic and social justice have a fundamental role to play in our public debate. America deserves competent and pragmatic public policy solutions that are in the interest of all.
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.
