When conversations first began about how to achieve The Arizona We Want , the Center for the Future of Arizona set an ambitious goal– build a citizens’ agenda for Arizona’s second century–a vision and set of goals that will mobilize people throughout the state and survive transitions in leadership over time. The goals include empowering citizens, increasing civic involvement, and fostering citizen well–being and sense of connection to one another.
The Center for the Future of Arizona was established in 2002 by Dr. Lattie Coor to help Arizona shape its future through an action–oriented agenda that focuses on issues critical to the state.
More than a think tank, the Center is an independent “do tank” that combines research with collaborative partnerships and initiatives that serve the public interest and the common good.
Governed by a distinguished board of directors, the Center is a 501(c)(3) organization funded through foundation, corporate and community contributions.
