Center for Law and Social Policy

CLASP is a national, nonpartisan, anti-poverty nonprofit advancing policy solutions to improve the lives of people with low incomes. We develop practical yet visionary strategies for reducing poverty, promoting economic opportunity, and addressing institutional and racial barriers faced by people of color. With over 50 years’ experience at the federal, state, and local levels, we’re advancing a bold vision for the future rooted in economic security and racial equity.

CLASP understands that poverty in America is inextricably tied to systemic racism. That’s why racial equity is our core value and informs all aspects of our organizational culture and the way we think about and approach our policy, issue, and advocacy areas. >> Learn more.
