Advancement Project



The Advancement Project (AP) was founded in 1999 by civil rights lawyers to reform public systems and achieve equity for underserved communities. Its four focus areas include: Urban Peace to reduce violence and promote community safety; Educational Equity to ensure adequate school facilities and resources; Healthy City, an online database/mapping program to promote data-driven decision making about resource allocation; and Equity in Public Funds to promote the equitable distribution of public resources.
