The New America Foundation, since renamed to New America, was launched in 1999 by founding president Ted Halstead and is now led by Steve Coll. It is headquartered in Washington D.C. with a significant presence in California.[1]

Deplatforming Advocacy

New America's Open Technology Institute signed a letter spearheaded by Accountable Tech headlined Open Letter to the Biden-Harris Administration: Treating Disinformation as an Intersectional Threat urging Joe Biden to "treat disinformation as a fundamental and intersectional threat" and proposes a range of supposed remedies to suppress speech on social media platforms, create and bolster federal government agencies to deal with "disinformation" and further to actively indoctrinate Americans, particularly in public schools.[2]

About

The Foundation claims to be nonpartisan and states that it emphasizes big ideas, "impartial analysis" and pragmatic solutions:[3]

"The New America Foundation is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy institute that invests in new thinkers and new ideas to address the next generation of challenges facing the United States. The foundation's mission is animated by the American ideal that each generation will live better than the last. That ideal is today under strain. Our education and health care systems are struggling with problems of quality, cost and access. The country requires creative means to address its fiscal challenges and pay for needed public, social and environmental investments. Abroad, the United States has yet to fashion sustainable foreign and defense policies that will protect its citizens and interests in a rapidly integrating world."
