Change the World at Polis Institute

At Polis Institute we empower people in urban communities to build brighter futures through revitalization and collaboration. The majority of communities we work in are predominantly Black and Latino neighborhoods where people understand that overcoming obstacles also means overcoming inequality.

Our approach to genuine neighborhood uplift is making sure community voices are valued right alongside best practices in rich data and evidence-based development.

We are a social research and urban engagement nonprofit. Our work creates a better future for all.

We bring rich data and great people together to create change that counts.

Our company values are equity, dignity, integrity, innovation, collaboration, and compassion. If you share these values, love making a difference, and have the skills and attitude to go with it, join us!
