The Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law is a nonpartisan law and policy institute that seeks to protect and improve our systems of democracy and justice. We hold our political institutions and laws accountable to the twin American ideals of democracy and equal justice for all. Among our core priorities, we fight to protect voting rights, end mass incarceration, check Executive abuses and strengthen checks and balances, maintain the independence and impartiality of the judiciary, and preserve Constitutional protection in the fight against terrorism. Part think tank, part public interest law center, part communications hub, we are known for our rigorous research. We craft innovative policies. And we fight for them — in Congress and the states, in the courts, and in the court of public opinion.
The Brennan Center’s high-impact communications work is vital to its success. Our experts and research are consistently sought out by lawmakers and allies, all major news outlets, including The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Atlantic, NPR, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, among others, and many regional outlets. We have more than 70,000 subscribers to our highly substantive e-newsletter and a growing digital audience for our content-rich website and social media platforms. We regularly publish reports, books, and papers, and host dozens of public events in New York and Washington, D.C. The Center is led by Michael Waldman, a prominent public intellectual and author, communications strategist, democracy expert and former chief speechwriter to President Bill Clinton.
