The Sociological Initiatives Foundation supports social change by linking research to social action.  It funds research projects that investigate laws, policies, institutions, regulations, and normative practices that may limit equality in the United States.  It gives priority to projects that seek to address racism, xenophobia, classism, gender bias, exploitation, or the violation of human rights and freedoms.  It also supports research that furthers language learning and behavior and its intersection with social and policy questions.

  • Policy development
  • Placement and shaping of the policy agenda
  • Policy adoption or implementation
  • Policy blocking
  • Increasing advocacy capacity and political influence
  • Shaping public sentiment
