Vision & Mission

Our Vision & Mission

I-­SEEED is a national research, education, and technology institute working to ensure racial justice, equitable development, and just sustainability for all. We ensure that communities have a voice in the decisions that impact their daily lives through organizing, leadership development, game-changing technologies, culturally and community pedagogies, creative place-making, and creating new models of direct democracy. I-­SEEED builds power and self-determination in low-income communities and communities of color by increasing civic participation, improving local economies, bettering our environment, transforming education, and increasing access to opportunity for our nations most vulnerable populations.
