Policypedia, a project of the Lucy Burns Institute, aims to illuminate major policy issues being discussed and implemented throughout the United States. Public policy can be complicated and controversial; deciding what works best and how to allocate resources to achieve a policy goal can involve multiple trade-offs. Our coverage is neutral, nonpartisan and comprehensive, written in clear language for the non-specialist.

Policy decisions matter because they affect citizens, especially economically, legally and socially. Our mission is to help readers discover and learn useful information, so they can participate in public policy discussions and vote for candidates and initiatives aligned with their values and interests.
