SCOPE uses visionary research and analysis to inform our power-building and campaign strategies. Our research team helps us understand how social and economic trends impact low-income communities of color in the LA region so we can be more proactive in our policy fights. We build partnerships with key academic institutions, labor allies, and policy strategists to ensure that the voice of the community is woven into the overall progressive research and policy agenda.
We believe in a community-centered approach to research─this means we see community members as experts. Ground-truthed research that is integrated into a leadership development strategy results in lasting social change.
