Open Philanthropy recommended two grants totaling $1,000,000 to Employ America for general support. Employ America makes the public and intellectual case for policies that support full employment and seeks to build a broad set of allies to further that goal. It produces research and analysis on the state of the labor market and current and potential macroeconomic policies and policymakers. Employ America is led by Sam Bell, who has consulted for us and our grantee Fed Up.

This follows our April 2019 support that launched Employ America, and falls within our focus area of macroeconomic stabilization policy.
