Narrative Initiative catalyzes durable narrative change in order to make equity and social justice common sense.

We make connections between people and organizations, amplify the best tools and methodologies from an emerging field, and activate new collaborations that lead to greater alignment.

Catalyze alignment in the field

We organize strategy labs, conduct landscape assessments, and explore opportunities for greater alignment among organizations, sectors and movements in order to advance deep narrative shifts.

Narrative is a strategy towards an end; a tool for restructuring the way people feel, think and respond to the world.
