The Center For Research and Policy in the Public Interest (CR2PI) at the New York Women’s Foundation is a micro research and policy center created with support from the  W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

The  Center for Research and Policy in the Public Interest (CR2PI)  works at the intersections of race, gender, class and other markers of difference on a range of social issues and problems. We conduct ground breaking original research and policy analysis focused on women of color, their families and communities. Research generated at CR2PI is used to build knowledge, influence the public debate, and create informed public policies at the local, state, and national levels. The ultimate goal of our research and policy analysis is to increase access and relieve disparities for economically vulnerable families, and to help build more connected communities throughout the United States.

The Center also serves an innovation and leadership development hub for women of color practitioners, scholars and advocates.
