  • The Haas Institute brings together researchers, organizers, stakeholders, policymakers, and communicators to identify and challenge the barriers to an inclusive, just, and sustainable society and to create transformative change. GOALS:Advancing multidisciplinary research and policy analysis: The Haas Institute’s research agenda examines the structural and cultural impediments to full equity and inclusion and the benefits derived from a diverse and equitable society.Building relationships among researchers, organized stakeholders, and policymakers to effect change: Using an innovative model unique in higher education, the Haas Institute aligns research with community organizers, policymakers, and other stakeholders.Employing strategic communication to illuminate research and impact policy: The Haas Institute seeks to effectively communicate research discoveries as well as to help shape how research is framed in order to increase its impact. To be most successful, we must engage the conscious mind and the unconscious mind, which is less empirical, less fact driven, highly social, and more animated by stories, values, and metaphors.Making a difference: More than a third of Haas Institute resources will be devoted to a few “game changers” — issues that if won or lost will have a profound impact on society.
  • Demystifying ResearchHow do we use research in organizing? To step back and analyze context; To understand patterns and processes; To better understand our shared struggles and uniqueness; To have evidence we can use to make our case;What is research? We do research everyday; Research has been used against us; We are the experts on our communities; We can be surprised and empowered by research; Where does research come from? Data comes from the forms we fill out, the responses we give to census workers;
  • The opportunities we experience in our family, neighborhood, and region are not coincidences. Define structuresGroup them into themes: industry, infrastructure, institutions
  • InfrastructureIn our group on infrastructure, we will talk about: What has been the investment in our public infrastructure? Map of ARRA funded projects and amount of funding (Done! - Samir)Map of school funding for each district pre and post Local Control Funding legislation (spreadsheet prepared)Chart of subsidies of public transit system (Eli has)How well does this infrastructure meet the community needs? Chart of percentage of income spent on transportation for low-income workers (Eli has)Chart of over-burdened renters and homeowners (Eli has)
  • In our group on industry, we will talk about:Where are people working in our county? Map of major employers (Done! - Samir)Map of anchor institutions (Done! - Samir)What is the quality of the jobs we have? Chart of median wages of most common occupations in the county (done)Chart of racial make-up of workers in each occupation (done)What will be the jobs in the near future? Chart of projected numbers of jobs for each occupation in next ten years (done)Possible Discussion QuestionsWhat are the barriers that keep our community members from accessing the jobs with living wages and benefits? What are the practices and policies that keep us from turning the jobs we have into jobs with living wages and benefits?  
  • In our group on Institutions, we will talk about research on: How well are our educational institutions serving as a pathways to good jobs? Map of percent of public school students graduating with required classes for UC system (spreadsheet prepared)Map of the gap between percentage white students at a school and percentage white school age residents living near the school (spreadsheet prepared)How significant are the barriers to our communities being served by public institutions? Map showing difference in median income of residents in adjacent school districtsChart of people who can’t vote due to criminal justice involvement or immigration statusChart of recidivism rate
