EOI's mission is to restore the promise of the middle class by advancing public policies that promote educational opportunity, good jobs, healthy families and workplaces, and a dignified retirement for all.
Citizens count on democratic institutions to make sound public policy choices that protect and promote broad economic opportunity for our children, families and communities. But when public policy debates are dominated by narrow self-interest and the drive for private gain, civic institutions fail to develop solutions to our common problems. That puts the American Dream of equal opportunity at risk.
EOI is an independent, nonpartisan, non-profit public policy center using research, education and advocacy to shape public debate and advance new policy ideas that help build an economy that works - for everyone.
Working in concert with grassroots organizations, community coalitions and elected officials, we publish research, shape public debate and catalyze policy initiatives that make Washington state a better place to live, work, raise a family and do business. We focus primarily on promoting high-quality education, high-road economic development, modern work-life standards, retirement security, and shared investments in our common future.
