CLASP develops and helps implement federal, state, and local policies (in legislation, regulation, and on the ground) that reduce poverty, improve low-income people’s lives, and creates pathways to economic security for everyone. That includes directly addressing the barriers people face because of race, ethnicity, and immigration status. We also fight back against bad ideas as well as political attacks on effective policies and investments.
Because challenges and solutions are highly complex, we work across numerous issue areas. To learn more, explore our issues below.
CLASP recently spoke with Julie Eisenberg, owner and director of Lighthouse Yoga Center in D.C. about her reasons for supporting the Universal Paid Leave Act.
Realizing Youth Justice is an advocacy framework aimed at disrupting the devastating impact that criminal and juvenile justice systems have on youth of color and low-income youth. CLASP believes that strengthening investments in workforce, education, and health care is an anti-incarceration strategy that supports youth across the spectrum of justice involvement, including diversion and successful re-entry.
On March 23-24, 2017 CLASP convened the spring meeting of the CCRY Network in Washington, D.C. hosted by FHI 360.
