BPI's mission is to combat systemic barriers to equity and to fight for racial, economic and social justice. We do this work to realize our vision, that every person has the right and opportunity to live their fullest life in a thriving community and free of systemic barriers.
An innovative public interest law and policy center, BPI utilizes a combination of legal tools, policy research, advocacy, organizing, and convening to work towards transformational change. Dedicated to advancing nuanced solutions to pressing racial, economic, and social justice issues, BPI's work is focused on housing, police accountability, criminal justice reform, and early childhood education. We lead and support efforts to dismantle systems of injustice, create structures that empower communities, and reduce harms caused by racism and oppression.
