Mission, Core Values & History

Our mission is to make democracy real.

The Jamestown Project is a diverse action-oriented think tank of new leaders who reach across boundaries and generations to make democracy real.  Founded and operated primarily by people of color and women, The Jamestown Project consists of scholars, activists, and communities who use five broad strategies to achieve our mission:  generating new ideas; promoting meaningful public conversations and engagement; cultivating new leaders; formulating political strategy and public policy; and using cutting-edge communications techniques that reach a broad public.
