The policy work of Kairos is oriented towards the needs, demands, and struggles of the poor and dispossessed.

Kairos’ policy team studies current economic and social conditions, engages frontline struggles of the poor, and conducts research and analysis around the interlocking injustices of systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation, militarism and the war economy. It also studies the false narratives that perpetuate these injustices.

In 2021, Kairos’ policy team will convene various experts, including researchers, scholars, public figures, and grassroots organizers, as part of a Kairos Policy Working Group. Members of the Working Group will work to advance Kairos’ analysis of current conditions, identify questions coming out of the struggles of the poor, and develop policy prescriptions that can end poverty.
